Beijing+25 Regional Review Meeting

29 - 30 October 2019

Palais des Nations, Geneva

UNECE provides a forum to its member States to review progress and identify challenges in the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action. The Beijing+25 Regional Review Meeting will be held on 29-30 October 2019 in Geneva. The meeting will address key areas of progress and challenges in the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action as well as the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, specifically SDG 5.

Regional Review of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action

UNECE will undertake a regional review and appraisal of the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and the outcomes of the twenty-third special session of the General Assembly in the context of preparations for the global Beijing +25 review in 2020. The review will also include an assessment of current challenges that affect the implementation of the Platform for Action and the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of women and its contribution towards the full realization of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The regional review will be based on national reports by UNECE member States. To facilitate the national-level review, the United Nations regional commissions in cooperation with UN Women have prepared a Guidance note for comprehensive national-level reviews. This Guidance note has been sent out by UN Women to the Permanent Missions in New York in September 2018. The national reports should be submitted no later than 1 May 2019 to the UNECE secretariat. 

The UNECE secretariat will prepare a regional review report on the basis of the national reports, which will be discussed at the Regional Review Meeting Beijing +25 on 29 and 30 October 2019 in the Palais des Nations, Geneva.
