Following the NGO CSW Geneva General Meeting, please find below information about the upcoming Beijing+25 Regional Review Meeting. 


The Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action of 1995 (Beijing Platform for Action) is the most ambitious road map for the empowerment of women and girls everywhere. In 2020, it will be 25 years since the Beijing Platform for Action sets strategic objectives and actions for the achievement of gender equality in 12 critical areas of concern.

The Beijing+25 Regional Review Meeting provides a forum for UNECE member States to review progress and identify challenges in the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action. The meeting will be held on 29-30 October 2019 in the Palais des Nations, Geneva, and is jointly organized by UNECE and the UN Women Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia.


The regional review and appraisal of the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and the outcomes of the twenty-third special session of the General Assembly is in the context of 

preparations for the global Beijing +25 review in 2020. The review will also include an assessment of current challenges that affect the implementation of the Platform for Action and the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of women and its contribution towards the full realization of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
