2022 Cairo Water Week - Empowering Women in Water Diplomacy in the MENA: moving into action
Strengthening the skills of the 21st century female water diplomat is crucial for having more women in leadership and decision-making positions in water diplomacy and transboundary water cooperation settings, that aspire to peace building.
Join us at Cairo Water Week, for a joint hybrid session organized by Geneva Water Hub and Global Water Partnership-Mediterranean, co-leading on the Initiative for the Empowerment of Women in Water Diplomacy in the MENA region. The session will share the latest developments of the Initiative, including testimonies from those involved in the experiential learning process. Furthermore, and with a forward-looking outlook, the key elements of the Initiative’s next phase of work will be shared, also benefitting from interactive feedback from the session’s participants through the use of online tools. Importantly, this part of the session will benefit from the reflections of a panel of targeted experts and practitioners regarding the specific action needed for moving towards a gender transformative MENA. These reflections will come from a spectrum of stakeholders representing different segments of action, including representatives of international organisations, civil society networks, youth, media.
