Date: Monday, November 9, 2015
UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, UN Women Director of the Programme Division, Maria Noel Vaeza and UN Women MCO Caribbean Representative Christine Arab recently met with the CARICOM Permanent Representatives to the United Nations and Permanent Mission staff to discuss UN Women’s support in localising of the Sustainable Development Goals for the Caribbean region.
UN Women MCO Caribbean supports governments and non-governmental organisations in ensuring the gender equality concerns of the Caribbean are heard in the global and regional inter-governmental processes which drive climate change, Small Island Development States (SIDS) dialogues and resiliency, including reporting to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), engagement in the Commission on the Status of Women, and implementation and monitoring of the SDGs.
These efforts are in close partnership with the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat.
