Regional 15-year review processes
Regional review processes - including the preparation of regional review reports and the organization of regional intergovernmental meetings - are being undertaken in all five regions by the United Nations regional commissions - ECA, ECE, ECLAC, ESCAP, ESCWA.
The outcomes of these regional review processes fed into the fifty-fourth session of the Commission on the Status of Women from 1-12 March 2010.
The Commission noted the relevance of the regional reviews and outcomes of the regional-level intergovernmental processes in preparation for the “Beijing plus 15” review (CSW resolution 53/1 - E/2009/27). Each of the five UN regional commissions is preparing regional review reports, and intergovernmental meetings are being organized to contribute to the global review process in the Commission on the Status of Women.
