63rd CSW Expert Group Meeting Report 2018

Saturday, September 1, 2018
United Nation Theme: 

This report is the outcome of an Expert Group Meeting on the priority theme of the 63rd Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), Social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. The 63rd CSW brings together three thematic areas that are not always considered together, at least in the world of policymaking. A growing body of evidence produced by feminist researchers across the globe strongly indicates, however, that they cannot be viewed in isolation from one another. Coordinated and well-funded systems of social protection, public services, and sustainable infrastructure are imperative to achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment (SDG 5). In fact, they form the backbone of the entire 2030 Agenda: from health and wellbeing (SDG 3) to quality education for all (SDG 4), from poverty eradication (SDG 1) to the reduction of inequalities (SDG 10), and from decent work and inclusive growth (SDG 8) to combating climate change (SDG 13).
