The African Women’s Development and Communication Network (FEMNET), with the support of the EU, convened over 190 African women’s rights organization representatives from 34 African countries in Nairobi, Kenya, for the first and biggest pan-African women’s conference since the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015.
During the conference, African women’s rights organizations and movements developed a Strategic Roadmap geared towards safeguarding and cultivating gender equity gains. African women’s movements intend to ensure that women and girls are at the centre of the effective follow-up, and monitoring and implementation of the SDGs and Africa Agenda 2063.Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs Cabinet Secretary Cecily Kariuki (centre),
