Abstracts Authors

We would like to sincerely thank all of you who have sent abstracts, thus providing important substantive contribution to the Geneva NGO Forum for the Beijing+20 UN ECE Regional Review. We sincerely appreciate the time you have spent reflecting and writing on the gaps, challenges and recommendations for the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA).

These abstracts were reviewed by the conveners of the 16 Interactive Roundtables on the 12 critical areas of concern of the BPfA, as well as selected emerging issues, which will take place on Tuesday, 4 November. The conveners of the Interactive Roundtables have utilized these abstracts in 2 ways:

  • they have invited some authors as speakers in roundtables;
  • and they have integrated this substantive input in the outcome document of the Forum.
