More about WMU Empowering Women Programme and Stakeholder Forum
The WMU Empowering Women Programme is generously sponsored by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) with support from The Nippon Foundation. The Programme is endorsed by IOC-UNESCO as a Decade Action (Programme) and will play a central role in supporting the Ocean Decade mission to catalyze transformative ocean science solutions for sustainable development. For further information, see the programme website here.
WMU's Empowering Women Programme advances an inclusive model for the sustainable governance of ocean spaces and maritime activities. It duly takes into account the need to ensure effective gender equality and the empowerment of women at all levels, particularly in leadership roles, in order to ensure the sustainable management of the global ocean.
Based on the inclusive model, the Stakeholder Consultative Forum was established to exchange knowledge and support research in the Empowering Women Programme. Participantion in the Forum supports the work of the Programme team and contributes to raising awareness through individual and collective efforts, advocating for gender equality and the empowerment of women at all relevant international fora. In addition, forum participants play an active role in the development of an action plan for improving gender equality, and empowering women in ocean science and governance institutions under the Decade’s framework.
