Current and Proposed Activities by Programme for 2013

Most of the programmes are interlinked with capacity building, advocacy and knowledge building components. However in terms of implementation of specific activities to achieve our objectives the activity is anchored in one or another programme. This Calendar of activities highlights some of the IWRAW Asia Pacific events planned for the year in order to implement our programmes or to support the work of national partners. It also includes some of our engagements with various international human rights mechanisms and processes at the regional or international level as well as certain key international events/forums in relation to women’s human rights.
