UNGA 77 High-Level Side Event to Discuss Progress and Action on Women, Peace and Security

South Africa and Switzerland, as 2022 Co-Chairs of the WPS Focal Points Network, in partnership with troika members, Canada and Uruguay, and UN Women as the Network Secretariat, will host a high-level WPS Focal Points Network side event on the margins of the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly. The event will be held virtually on 22 September 2022 from 10:15 AM to 12:15 PM EDT under the theme: Partnering for Change: Translating the Women, Peace and Security Agenda into Action.

This annual side event will provide an opportunity for ministers, senior officials and heads of regional organizations to highlight their engagement and efforts on the themes discussed at the Fourth Capital-Level Meeting in Geneva and in particular, to outline one key action that they will take forward from these discussions.

A recording of the event is available here.
