Confab Held for Int’l Women’s Day Ends

first_imgA three-day regional workshop held on Gender, Climate Change, Land and Forest Tenures in Africa that brought together an assembly of women’s organizations from across Africa and other parts of the world ended on Friday in Monrovia.The workshop was part of activities commemorating this year’s International Women Day in Liberia. They made the disclosure at a press conference on Thursday, attended by a cross-section of participants.The workshop began on Tuesday March 4 and ended on Friday March 7. The participants sounded a call for women to play a leading role in decision making processes. The women who attended the workshop expressed the belief that women’s absence in times of policy negotiation has affected their wellbeing in issues concerning climate change and poor management of natural resources.The workshop was hosted on the theme: “Securing Women’s Land and Forest Property Rights.”It was the third and final in a series of regional workshops hosted by the group under the auspices of the African Women’s Network for Community Management of Forest (REFACOF). Participants were drawn from a cross-section of the various organizations including the Rights and Resources Initiative (RRI), the Foundation for Community Initiatives (FCI), Association of Female Lawyers of Liberia (AFELL), and Women Organizing for Change in Agriculture and Natural Resources Management (WOCAN&NRM), among others. REFACOF was represented by its president, Mrs. Cècile Ndjebet, while RRI was represented by its director, Dr. Solange Bandiaky Badji, and FCI by its vice president, Julie Weah.Explaining the objective of the three-day gathering, REFACOF president, Mrs. Ndjebet said it intended to support the promotion of women’s rights via capacity-building on issues of gender, land and forest rights in African in the context of climate change— notably REDD+— and land and forest reforms in Africa. It mainly focused on: 1) the advocacy for greater consideration of the gender dimension in on-going reforms and their implementation; 2) support to rural and indigenous women to have access to judicial services; 3) raising awareness of men and women for a change of mentality on the eradication of inequalities in society; 4) diversifying the economic activities of women so they generate income for the acquisition of goods and services enabling them to improve their livelihoods. During the three-day deliberations, participants prepared terms of references for training modules and made identification badges for trainers among other activities.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
