Armenia was selected as Action Coalition leader for technology and  innovations under the UN-led "Generation Equality" Forum on women`s  rights

ArmInfo. On 1 July, Armenia  became global leader for "Technology and Innovation for Gender  Equality" action coalition of the UN-led Generation Equality Forum,  the press service of the Armenian Foreign Ministry informs. 

Convened under the auspices of the United Nations, the Generation  Equality Forum was established upon the initiative of the UN Entity  for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN-Women),  co-hosted by the Governments of France and Mexico, in partnership  with civil society. The process aims to boost cooperation between  governments, international organizations and the civil society in the  context of the 25th anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on  Women and the adoption of the Beijing Declaration. The Forum is  structured around six thematic action coalitions that are aimed at  promoting gender equality and women's rights in the areas of economic  empowerment, healthcare and climate, prevention of gender-based  violence, feminist movements and leadership.

The global leaders of the Action Coalitions comprise 20 countries,  selected entities of the United Nations system, international  organizations and other relevant stakeholders, including civil  society organizations. The selection of the coalition leaders was  made on the basis of the level of the demonstrated commitment of the  candidates, the progress achieved in the priority area and other  criteria. Armenia's nomination for coalition leadership in technology  and innovations stems from the priorities of the Government of  Armenia for advancing gender equality, political and economic  empowerment of women, as well as progress achieved in the ICT  industry.

The Action Coalition on technology and innovations will be led by  Armenia, Finland and Tunisia - the three countries that have been  selected to steer global action in cooperation with the UNICEF and  the International Telecommunication Union.

The Generation Equality Forum will also launch an innovative Compact  for Women, Peace and Security and Humanitarian Action to drive action  and resources towards peace, security and humanitarian action. The  Compact will strengthen coordination between existing initiatives and  partnerships to ensure that women and youth are at the center of  peace, security and humanitarian action, twenty years after the  landmark UN Security Council resolution 1325 on women, peace and  security.
