In 2016 we built the capacity of over 400 feminist advocates, particularly grassroots and marginalised women, from 25 countries in Asia Pacific to analyse, organise, and drive social, economic and political change.
We strengthen and reinforce institutional solidarity for Development Justice and Climate Justice with feminist lens, through our active participation in the Women and Gender Constituency of the UNFCCC; our leadership in the Asia Pacific Regional Civil Society Engagement Mechanism (AP-RCEM) where there is a unified call for Development Justice, and the increased space we are seeing for women workers and their priorities within the broader trade union movement. Public Service International (PSI) invited APWLD to share our strategy for Global Strike. And two new trade unions were added to our membership.
