2016 Regional ShareFair on Gender and Resilience

UN Women, in partnership with the African Development Bank (AfDB), Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) and other partners will hold a regional Sharefair on Gender and Resilience with the theme of ‘Strengthening Resilience by Empowering Women’. The 2-day sharing and learning event will provide opportunity to further explore the role of women in building and strengthening resilience and promote dialogue and sharing of experiences on gender-responsive resilience-related programmes and policies in Africa to accelerate development and humanitarian response and the overall achievement of the SDGs. The event will also facilitate a long-term collaboration amongst regional stakeholders with the aim of identifying problems, using data and predictive methods, and mobilizing support and resources to incubate, accelerate, and scale effective solutions. The main expected outcome will be the creation of a strong regional network to amplify resilience solutions beyond the event, sustaining change in policy and practice within relevant macro-economic frameworks.
