BRICS+ Women Leaders Join Efforts to Promote a Fair World and Sustainable Development
6 September 2022
15:00—16:30

Empowerment of women is one of the fundamental components of a more equitable and sustainable world. The current international situation requires the BRICS countries to address the new challenges: economic crisis, food security threats, climate change. At the same time, guided by the principles of multilateral and multipolar diplomacy to meet the key global challenges, the BRICS+ dialogue has been significantly gaining international weight. By what means can BRICS+ countries lower barriers to women’s participation in the economic and political life? What role could BRICS+ female leaders play in shaping the priorities of the global development and empowerment agenda? What steps are required to strengthen the role of women in the global sustainable development initiatives?
