CEDAW Implementation Project
Project to support CEDAW implementation in Southern Africa and Indian Ocean Region
The Centre for Human Rights (CHR), in partnership with UNIFEM, has undertaken a project to support the implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in Southern African and Indian Ocean Region. The project has the following components:
- Development of a common agenda for gender equality advocates on aid effectiveness
- Regional training on CEDAW reporting
- CEDAW and gender equality training
- CEDAW report writing support and technical assistance to identified states
Dissemination of knowledge emerging from, and relevant to, the project is fundamental to its success. All research and reports emerging from the project as well as documentation related to the implementation of CEDAW in the regions will be made available on this site including, but not limited to, primary international legal texts, State and civil society reports to the CEDAW Committee, case law, and literature. This website is envisioned to serve as a comprehensive knowledge bank for government, civil society, and other stakeholders, in the Southern Africa and Indian Ocean regions to facilitate the dissemination and exchange of information on CEDAW.
