IORA’s first ever webinar will take place on 24 January 2019 from 10:00-12:00 (South African time). The webinar is a deliverable of the UK funded research, entitled “Strengthening women’s economic empowerment in the blue economy” in IORA Member States. Carried out by the Human Science and Research Council (HSRC; based in South Africa), the research is expected to be delivered by end of January 2019.
Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE) is a cross-cutting issue in IORA and forms part of IORA’s Action Plan 2017-21 to enhance gender equality, eradicate poverty and promote inclusive economic growth in the region. For more on WEE in IORA, see the Focus Area page.
