Gender Equity and Sustainable Development: Prioritizing Actions to Achieve Results
The Honorable Melanne Verveer, Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues, US Department of State

Venue: Resources and Conservation Center, Conference Center, 1st Floor, 1400 16th St. NW
Today, prospects for sustainable development remain a serious challenge as our global economy, our natural environment, our social well-being, and our political structures are in crisis. From the economy to climate change to food and agriculture, systems of governance are in disarray. Leaders recognize that gender equity is essential for achieving sustainable development, yet in many instances rhetoric has yet to materialize into action.
Join the Heinrich Böll Foundation and partners in a multi-stakeholder dialogue to review systems of governance focusing on economics, food and agriculture, and climate and concrete ways to achieve gender equitable and sustainable development in 2012 and beyond.
