29 January 2019 


The purpose of this webinar was to introduce and discuss the UN Secretary General’s reports to these two ‘sister’ ECOSOC Commissions: CSocD and CSW, and to help build a common agenda. Governments are typically represented at CSW and CSocD by different ministries. Global and national initiatives to reduce gender and socio-economic inequalities suffer from fragmentation. The year 2019 presents an opportunity to build bridges between the CSW and CSocD and help government ministries work towards their common goals of equality and ‘leaving no-one behind’.
