WOMEN’S PERSPECTIVE ON SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Global Women’s Survey on Sustainable Development Issues

UN Women and the Rockefeller Foundation have launched a global survey on sustainable development and the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD, or Rio+20), aimed at supporting the Rio+20 Women’s Major Group (WMG).

The survey aims to collect inputs that reflect the diverse views of women worldwide on the issue of gender equality and women’s empowerment, and to identify areas of focus and convergence that will contribute to the Rio+20 negotiations and the framework for action. It will also collect information on successful women’s projects and supportive policies to showcase initiatives that can be scaled up. In addition, WMG will use the survey results to: prepare position papers and issue briefs; advocate to government delegates; and propose text additions and changes, among other activities.
