Not Without Us: Calling for Sustainable Development Centered on Human Rights

2018

Activists from Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Palestine, Sudan, Syria, Turkey and Tunisia convened for four days of collective learning on harmonising the sustainable development framework with the human rights framework with a specific focus on the context of the Middle East and North Africa region. The consultation aimed to enhance the capacity of women’s rights organisations to engage with the SDGs and strategise to monitor the implementation of the SDGs, especially at national and regional level. This convening was organised by IWRAW Asia Pacific and the Jordanian Women’s Union with funding support from Oxfam Egypt. (Running time: 5:30.)
