Reflections on CSW 58
Key areas of consensus and contention in the post-2015 development agenda -Reflections on CSW 58
Last month’s session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) provided a critical preview of the key areas of consensus and contention that are likely to shape the post-2015 development agenda. The priority theme of CSW was “Challenges and achievements in the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals for Women and Girls”. Member States therefore reviewed progress in relation to the broad range of issues encompassed by the MDGs, including poverty, health, education, the impacts of climate change, and gender equality.
