Meeting with National Committee on Women (NCW) – Consultation with the CEDAW Concluding Observations

Since May 2011, the WMC initiated a discussion with NCW on the importance of conducting a meeting to discuss strategies to implement the CEDAW Concluding Observations at the national level. The NCW agreed to hold a meeting with various government officials and was willing to invite selected NGOs as well in order to make it a consultative online casinos process between the government and NGOs. The meeting was held on 9th September at the Ministry of Women’s Affairs, and was attended by the Minister as well as other government officials from relevant ministries. Representatives from Women in Need, CENWOR and the WMC were also invited to attend.

However, it is still too early to determine the Impact of this meeting.
