‘On the Road to Busan’: International Consultation on Development Cooperation, Women’s Rights and Gender Equality

On behalf of ESCR-Net’s Working Group on Women and Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the Global Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights participated in a two day consultation held in Brussels, Belgium which aimed to create a common platform for influencing the High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness (HLF-4) that took place in Busan, South Korea, from 29 November to 1 December 2011.  The consultation was hosted by Women in Development (WIDE) in cooperation with the women’s groups of the BetterAid Coordinating Group (BACG): Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID), the Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD), Coordinadora de la Mujer/Bolivia, the African Women’s Development and Communication Network (FEMNET).  During the Consultation, the Global Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights served as a resource on women’s economic, social and cultural rights, including coordinating a break out session during the consultation on rights-based approaches to development, and made substantive contributions to the draft ‘Key Demands from Women’s Rights Organizations and Gender Equality Advocates To the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness (Busan 2011) and the Development Cooperation Forum (2012).’  That document (available here) ultimately received the endorsement of over 50 women’s rights groups from all over the world, and will serve as on ongoing platform for common advocacy aimed at transforming the international aid effectiveness agenda.
