The Relief and Recovery Pillar of the Women, Peace and Security agenda focuses on ensuring that relief needs specific to women and girls are met and that special attention is paid to the most vulnerable, including displaced women and girls, survivors of gender based violence, and those with disabilities. It also calls for efforts to support women's activities as agents in relief and recovery efforts, including providing women with equal access to livelihoods activities. Costa will focus on the situation of displaced women and girls and discuss areas where there has been progress, as well as highlight ongoing challenges and possible ways to meet them.
