Ownership And Women's Organisations Participation
Brief Issue paper on Country ownership and Gender Equality
The 3rd High Level Forum took place in Accra in September 2008. It had 9 Roundtables (RT), providing space for in-depth dialogue on selected topics. This Brief Issue Paper was prepared by a group of women’s rights organisations: DAWN, WIDE, AWID, and FEMNET1, to give inputs for the preparation of the Roundtable 1 on Country Ownership.
This document provides a brief review of some of the concerns highlighted by women’s rights organisations related to the implementation of the Paris Declaration Principle on Country Ownership; it also introduces proposals and key questions for the discussion of the RT 1 on how to promote further harmonisation of the so-called cross-cutting issues, specifically in terms of gender equality and women’s empowerment; and finally it presents a list of possible speakers to be considered in the design of the RT.
