2019 Global Forum
Held at the United Nations Conference Center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the three-day convening (December 10-12, 2019) attracted 58 registrants (30 women, 28 men) from 46 organizations in 18 countries (Africa (7), Asia (5), Americas (4), Europe (1), and the Middle East.
Building an Agenda for Action
The 2019 event focused on developing concrete action steps that civil society organizations can take. Participants began with the Bangkok Statement of Principles for civil society groups, governments, unions, and businesses, adopted at the 2018 Forum in Thailand, and mapped out 51 direct steps their groups could take to realize those principles in their area of operations.
