While the global climate crisis remains the existential threat of our time, the COVID-19 pandemic and increasing debt crisis has concocted a “global toxic cocktail” that is impacting women and girls at disproportionate levels. At our September Monthly meeting, a diverse panel of debt and climate change experts explored the issues and related interplay. Read the full recap here.
Join us for our October Monthly Meeting! We’ll be having a panel discussion on the intersections of women, youth, peace and security and climate change. At the beginning of the meeting, our Chair will provide updates on NGO CSW/NY and the NGO CSW66 Forum.
NGOs in consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) may submit written statements on the thematic issues considered by CSW66, in accordance with Council resolution 1996/31. Submission of written statements for CSW66 will be open from 24 September to 15 October 2021.
Written statements may be submitted in one of the official languages of the United Nations (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, Spanish) and will be published on the CSW website in the language received, closer to the session.
NGO CSW/NY does not endorse statements: we help disseminate information and facilitate discussion about issues concerning women’s and feminist movements. Member organizations and individuals can decide if they would like to sign on to these statements.
