    Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women. Special IPS TerraViva for the 2010 Annual Ministerial Review

    tvamrlogfinalThe 2010 Annual Ministerial Review (AMR) will turn the spotlight on actions and progress made to meet the global agenda on women’s issues and to mainstream a gender perspective in all sectors. The purpose is to promote practical strategies to advance women’s participation as equal partners of sustainable development, peace and security, governance and human rights.

    On the occasion of the AMR (28 June – 1 July 2010) IPS will produce a special TerraViva ‘Equality and Empowerment of Women’. A printed version will be distributed in New York on Monday, June 28, and include in-depth coverage of the main issues discussed at the meeting, filed from some of the countries that will voluntarily report their progress on development goal 3 at the meeting.

    The magazine (pdf) will be available for downloading on the IPS Gender Portal since Monday.

    Fifteen years after the Beijing World Conference on Women, IPS remains committed to in-depth reporting on progress achieved and challenges facing women and girls.

    IPS has a long-standing editorial commitment to mainstreaming gender, which it has realised through training, editorial guidelines and targeted projects.

    On the occasion of the 54th session of the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in March this year, an international team of journalists provided special coverage from New York and produced two printed editions of IPS TerraViva.

    The special Gender TerraViva are part of the IPS programme “Communicating for Change: Getting Voice, Visibility and Impact for Gender Equality”. The IPS cast of stories includes independent coverage financed through the Dutch Government’s MDG3 Fund: Investing in Equality, and through the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM).
