UN Women and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is pleased to announce the Civil Society Advisory Group (CSAG) on Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women in Liberia.

UN Women looks to civil society for support to achieve its strategic goals and fulfill its mandate on gender equality and women’s empowerment.

It seeks inspiration from the dynamic and creative side of civil society, which can forge collective identities and alliances, and create formal and informal networks, initiatives, and social movements to articulate new social concerns.

Together, UN Women and civil society advocate for the importance of advancing policy and dialogue on women’s rights and empowerment, development, peace, and security.

The CSAG will be a consultative forum for strategic dialogue between civil society and UN Women.
