Global

"We, advocates of gender equality and women’s empowerment, pledge to significantly increase investments, in both scale and scope, to close the financing gaps that hinder progress towards gender equality and women’s empowerment. Our intent is to identify and agree on transformative policy and financing actions to accelerate implementation of existing commitments in the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and to meet new commitments in the context of the post-2015 development agenda."

"We laud the strong gender focus in the negotiated outcome document and invite all stakeholders – governments, international financial institutions, regional development banks, intergovernmental organisations, civil society, the private sector, and others – to translate these commitments into action through the endorsement and implementation of this Action Plan."
