Social equality, gender equality and environmental justice must form the heart of sustainable development, and of the outcomes of the Rio+20 UN Sustainable Development Conference in 2012. Twenty years after the first Rio conference, great social and economic inequities still remain, especially for rural and indigenous women.
Assert Women’s Right to Resources & Development! campaign is based on the rights and equity based approach to promoting just and equitable development. Development will not be sustainable without fulfilling the human rights of marginalised women. The campaign is convened by Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD), the region’s leading network of feminist organisations and women, and an independent, non-government, non-profit organisation active for 25 years.
