Key message on Gender parity from the Special Envoy for the Great Lakes region

Since 2013, the Office of the Special Envoy for the Great Lakes has been promoting and strengthening women's role as agents of change in all aspects of social, political and economic life. The most recent initiative included a Joint Solidarity Mission composed of women leaders from Women's platform, African Union, FEMWISE Africa and the ICGLR's Women Forum. The delegation travelled to Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic and South Sudan to discuss ways to achieve gender equality in the region.
