2015 is a crucial year for the international community. Indeed, the United Nations is elaborating a new post-2015 development agenda, which will be carried out through a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
All the currently proposed SDGs have relevant implications for women. In order to reflect on the women’s issue in this perspective, the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, together with the World Union of Catholic Women’s Organizations (WUCWO) and the World Women’s Alliance for Life and Family (WWALF), organised an International Conference under the title Women and the post-2015 development agenda - The challenges of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This International Conference followed up the one held in 2009 under the title “Life, family and development: the role of women in the promotion of human rights”.
Women and the post-2015 development agenda - The challenges of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) took place in Rome from 22 to 24 of May 2015 at The Church Village Hotel, situated in Via di Torre Rossa, 94.
