Dialogue on Mainstreaming Gender within the Three Rio Conventions: Progress to Date and the Way Forward

Time: 11:15-12:45pm
Location: Rio Conventions Pavilion within the Athletes Park

The event will comprise a series of dialogues among the Heads of the three Rio Convention secretariats. The objective is to focus on achievements with regards to the integration of gender aspects within each of the Conventions to date.

The event will also review the key challenges each Convention faces in mainstreaming gender equality throughout its operations, and the respective objectives for future implementation of gender equality and women’s empowerment principles.

The above objective addresses the UN Women mandate to support mainstreaming gender into the work and the programmes of the entire UN system, as well as reinforcing and mainstreaming gender equality into key intergovernmental processes.
