SAP Canada organized the Challenges of Mainstreaming Gender in Afghanistan seminar on May 31, 2002 to follow-up the recommendations of the Afghan Women’s Summit for Democracy organized by UNIFEM in Brussels, Belgium on December 4-5, 2001. That Summit issued the Brussels Proclamation, recommending action on Education, Media and Culture; Health; Human Rights and the Constitution; and, Refugees and Internally Displaced Women.
The Ottawa seminar brought together resource persons, Canadian civil society, non-government organizations and government officials to review the recommendations of the Brussels Proclamation as well as brainstorm and formulate a Canadian Plan of Action for its implementation in Afghanistan.
