Report of the Asian and Pacific Conference on Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment: Beijing+20 Review. ESCAP and UN Women. (2014)


In 1995, the Fourth World Conference on Women adopted the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, which were subsequently endorsed by the United Nations General Assembly. Every five years since 1995, progress in achieving the strategic objectives of the Platform for Action is reviewed by the Commission on the Status of Women, which is a functional commission of the Economic and Social Council.

2015 will mark the fourth review and the twentieth anniversary of the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action. In its resolution 2013/18, the Economic and Social Council called upon all States to undertake comprehensive national-level reviews of the progress made and challenges encountered in the implementation of the Platform for Action.
