    DAWN-RESURJ 'Call to Action Towards Cairo+20' videos

    "In the context of the current global economic and ecological crisis, and cutbacks in funding, there is a growing concern whether SRHR and gender equality may be relegated to the policy back-burner. Full recognition and realization of women's sexual and reproductive rights are therefore at stake, requiring new strategies to develop and advance a new agenda for SRHR beyond 2015.

    JOIN US in disseminating the DAWN-RESURJ 'Call to Action Towards Cairo+20' videos by young feminists from different constituencies and networks across the South and together, let us reclaim OUR RIGHTS, OUR LIVES, now and for the future!

    ARROW: Asia-Pacific regional meeting

    The Asian-Pacific Resource and Research Centre (ARROW) is organising an Asia-Pacific regional meeting on 2-4 May 2012 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, with the objective of addressing the critical sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) issues that are inter-linked to broader developmental as well as region-specific pertinent issues of Universal Access to Sexual and Reproductive Health, Poverty, Climate Change, Displacements and Migration, Food Security and Religious Extremism, in the lead up to defining the development agenda post 2014-2015.

    The above issues were identified based on the synthesis of a region-wide survey among NGO stakeholders in the Asia-Pacific region in 2011.

    The survey also highlighted that more needed to be done in this region before women are fully able to realise their SRHR. The meeting sets out to define and discuss the comprehensive SRHR agenda of the Asia-Pacific region, will chart the avenues for advocacy and effective engagement for NGOs in addition to equipping NGOs with necessary advocacy skills to facilitate their active engagement in all processes leading up to defining the development agenda post 2014-2015.
