High level event on the situation of Women and Girls in Afghanistan hosted by the Permanent Missions of Canada, Indonesia and Ireland.
The participation of women in economic development, including access of girls to education and women to employment and financial resources, is essential to ensuring its sustainability, as is widely recognized around the world. Investing in women is the most effective way to empower families and communities. This high-level event aims to centre the voices of Afghan women in discussing the need for women's participation in economic development, as a matter of strategic impact as well as human rights, and to prompt a discussion on how Afghan women can better participate in discussions on the future of their country.
