The Tunis Forum on Gender Equality

Forum on Gender Equality
24-26 April 2019. Tunis (Tunisia)

The Government of Tunisia, the United Nations Development Programme and UN Women, are organizing the Tunis Forum on Gender Equality that will take place April 24-26.

The Tunis Forum will explore the potential transformative role of women participating in local spaces/local government, and other issues. It will also provide a platform to explore the role of new trends in innovation and technology in encouraging women's economic empowerment.

The sessions would welcome more creative ideas, including music and poetry, but there is space for serious academic based discussion too. To this aim, there is an online consultation to engage champions of gender equality from various regions of the world in a global dialogue to help identify key subjects that are not always aired and that can form the basis of the agenda.

The consultation is expected to provide the Government of Tunisia as well as UNDP and UNWomen with ideas, suggestions and recommendations for the agenda, for panel organisers and for key participants with the key aim to influence the dialogue on Beijing +25.

The Tunis Forum will also take place before the first Global Sustainable Development Report is presented to the autumn summit on the SDGs and will be an opportunity to integrate and connect the key elements of these processes and highlight the important role that civil society can play.
