UN Women launches e-discussions on Inequalities – OCT 15

UN Women launches e-discussions on Inequalities as part of the consultations on the post-2015 agenda

UN Women in partnership with UNICEF is co-leading the UN Development Group Global Thematic Consultation on Inequalities and will facilitate the first of a series of e-discussions which will address a wide spectrum of inequalities.

The online platform for the e-discussion on addressing inequalities is now “live”.

The gender inequality discussion will open on Wednesday, October 3rd and is expected to continue for 3 to 4 weeks, followed by the e-discussion on gender-based violence, starting on 15th October.

The web-site : http://www.worldwewant2015.org/inequalities, is open to the public, following a simple registration process.

The conversation will start on the global platform with e-discussions on ‘gender equality and gender-based violence’.

The e-discussions will be a series of time-bound, co-moderated dialogues designed to seek the views of a broad range of stakeholders including governments, UN and other development agencies, civil society, philanthropic organizations, the private sector, and most importantly, the general public.

UN Women aims to bring together a wide range of views on a variety of topics related to inequalities to review progress on the Millennium Development Goals and discuss the options for reflecting and addressing inequalities in the post-2015 development framework.

These e-discussions are meant to stimulate a “global conversation” on the various forms of inequalities, identify policy options and responses and look at how these might be deployed in the context of the post-2015 development agenda and look in-depth at the structure, content and implications of major forms of inequalities, as barriers to development and social justice.

The e-discussions will specifically focus on the following issues, with these key constituencies: gender inequality, gender based violence, minority groups, indigenous people, urban/rural disparities, children and young people, and people with disabilities as well as other forms of inequality that may be raised during the discussions.

The Consultation on Inequalities is supported by the Government of Denmark, and is one of 11 consultations on different but inter-related issues such as population, health, education, growth & employment, conflict & fragility, governance, environmental sustainability, food security & nutrition, water, and energy.

The recommendations emerging from the e-discussions, and other discussions on gender within and outside the inequalities track, will be part of a synthesis report that will be presented to a high-level meeting in Denmark in February 2013 on Inequalities.

The report will also be provided to the High-level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda appointed by the UN Secretary-General.
