The FfD Women’s Caucus Statement addresses “Partnerships for Financing Gender-Sensitive, People-Centered Sustainable Development”.

Women are witnessing the establishment of new partnerships between the UN, IMF, World Bank, and WTO. We view these new partnerships with great concern because they presently support an unsustainable, gender-blind, corporate-focused development model. In this context we demand that these partners seek to actively develop an alternative gender-sensitive, people-oriented sustainable development paradigm and international financial architecture in order to change the structures that perpetuate imbalances and gender, racial, ethnic and cultural inequality.
