CSW 2017 – Leave No Woman’s Voice Behind: Community-led Development at Scale

The Movement for Community-led Development will once again host a parallel event during the 61st Session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women. To reserve your space, visit cldcsw61.eventbrite.com


A Davos-style conversation with agency leaders of large-scale strategies that mobilize the leadership of grassroots women and local government for community-led strategies for women’s economic development.

Traditional project-based development only reaches a lucky few. The SDGs require nation-wide programs that empower grassroots women to take charge of their own economic development in every community.
