Status: Open Access
The IGAD Regional Strategy for Higher Representation of Women in Decision Making at all levels of society and polity is a culmination of a long participatory process that brought several stakeholders to various forums for discussions on the situation assessment and analysis. These were undertaken by the IGAD Gender Desk around the end of 2009. The IGAD Women Parliamentary Conference, the first of its kind in the region, was held between 14th and 16th December 2009 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Representative Women Members of Parliament and leaders of women organizations from IGAD Member States, as well as representatives from the African Union Commission (AUC) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) attended the Conference.
