AU & Global Empowerment Movement Side Event at The UN

AU & Global Empowerment Movement  hosted the 57th Session of The Commission for Social Development Side Event

 

Activating and Strengthening Women Empowerment through Economic and Social Inclusion: Empowerment as a Link to Poverty Eradication and Sustainable Development – CSocD57 Side Event

AS reported by Global Africa Media

The aim of the side event is to highlight how Women and Youth inclusiveness, Economic and Equality Empowerment are the keys to Eradicate Poverty, Curb Human Trafficking, and Achieve Sustainable Development Goals.
The side event discussion addressed the following critical areas: Economic empowerment of the marginalized poor people, challenges to social inclusion, the effect of women and youth economic empowerment, and gender inequality on poverty in Africa. Poverty is the common root of Africa human trafficking, abuse of women, victimization of the vulnerable and the marginalized people in need. In addition, the side event explored ways we can strengthen empowerment through economic, education, political, fiscal, social inclusion, social protection policies because strengthening women and youth economic empowerment to be agents of change is the prerequisite for poverty eradication and the achievement of all the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
