Advocacy & Research Group's CSW66 Zero Draft Recommendations

In keeping with the NGO CSW/NY mission to inclusively lobby for gender equality, the Advocacy Research Group (ARG) provides solicited and researched Recommendations leading up to and during the CSW Outcome Document negotiations. After researching the CSW Priority Theme with input from the NGO CSWs in the Regions and global civil society, the ARG developed six key Recommendations to be considered for the CSW66 Zero Draft. These Recommendations have been sent to the UN Secretary-General, UN Women, the CSW Bureau, and other receptive member states. Read the six Recommendations by clicking the button below.
