2017 EuroNGOs Conference: Key Resources, Key Takeaways and reports

Posted by Maria Codina on November 23, 2017 at 9:17 am



The last 27th  and 28th of September 2017 the Share-Net team attended the EuroNGOs Conference in Brussels. The objectives of the conference were twofold:

  • Provide a platform for the SRHR community to unravel political and financial implications and put in place new narratives in the current political landscape and rise of populism. Share and collect best practices, techniques and approaches to respond to this changing context – at the global, regional and grassroots level.
  • Taking into account the shifting political landscape, come up with concrete strategies to use the global framework of the Sustainable Development Goals to mitigate this backlash and to put gender, human and sexual and reproductive rights firmly on the agenda of the implementation, follow-up and review of the SDGs.

You can find more about the program on the website.
