ICAD’s International Women’s Day Blog Series with the Huffington Post

Theme: TBD

March 8, 2016

International Women’s Day

The 2016 theme for International Women’s Day is “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality”. The United Nations observance on 8 March will reflect on how to accelerate the 2030 Agenda, building momentum for the effective implementation of the new Sustainable Development Goals. It will equally focus on new commitments under UN Women’s Step It Up initiative, and other existing commitments on gender equality, women’s empowerment and women’s human rights. – Source: http://www.unwomen.org/en/news/in-focus/international-womens-day#sthash.rvRdSQr7.dpuf

UN General Assembly Special Session on Drugs (UNGASS) 2016

The United Nations General Assembly Special Session, or UNGASS, is a meeting of UN member states to assess and debate global issues such as health, gender, or in this case, the world’s drug control priorities. The last time a special session on drugs was held, in 1998, its focus was the total elimination of drugs from the world. Today, political leaders and citizens are pushing to rethink that ineffective and dangerous approach. – Source: Open Society Foundations
