Linking Post-War Infrastructure Reconstruction, Feminist Peace, and Sustainable Development

This interactive panel discussion will bring together women civil society leaders and scholars to show why WPS advocates, if they are to achieve their goals, must focus on and incorporate feminist analysis of physical infrastructure.

Our emphasis will be on decentralised and environmentally appropriate infrastructure solutions that are informed by women’s knowledge and needs.

We will focus on how to create the enabling international policy environment to support those solutions and incorporate feminist analysis for feminist peace and sustainable development.
