From 9 to 13 of June in Nadi, Fiji

Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC)
As part of work to advance transformative gender positions throughout national, regional and global sustainable development and Climate Change agendas, an urgent piece of work is to collaboratively build stronger partnerships of civil society and states with a focus on strengthening shared political understandings and strategies. At this conjuncture of Pacific Plan Review process, SIDS, Beijing+20, UNFCCC, SDGS/HLPF, and Post 2015 Development Agenda tracks, there is a timely opportunity to strengthen such partnerships and engagement for implementation of regional and global priorities, with the aim of demonstrating concrete policy results, and also increasing support for women-led civil society groups and national women’s machineries in the Pacific region.
This innovative project brings together national, regional and global women-led CSOs and networks, National Women's Machineries (NWMs) and High level State representatives from NY Missions and Capitals to discuss, strategize and agree on short-term, medium and long-term priorities and political partnerships to advance transformative gender, climate change and DRR positions into the global sustainable development and CC agendas. The project is jointly developed and co-convened by Secretariat of the Pacific Community, Diverse Voices and Action for Equality and Pacific Youth Council, in partnership with DAWN, The Women’s Major Group on Sustainable Development, Fiji Women’s Rights Movement, WECF, UN Women Multi-Country Office, Dag Hammarskjold Foundation, Global Fund for Women, and Heinrich Boell Foundation with many others providing expertise and financial resources.
This process aims to accomplish the following objectives:
- Strategize and agree on urgent and long-term Pacific priorities and State and civil society partnerships to advance transformative gender, climate change and DRR positions into the global sustainable development agendas;
- Identify how CSOs and NWMs can support Pacific Missions and capital negotiators as they position Pacific priorities in global advocacy tracks;
- Strengthen mechanisms to monitor the implementation of policies, promote transparency, accountability and dialogue throughout the global gender, sustainable development and Climate Change agendas.
