The 2024 conference serves as a platform to discuss and adopt the 2024-2025 Roadmap for Implementation, a strategic initiative aimed at operationalising the 5th UfM Ministerial Declaration on Strengthening the Role of Women in Society approved in Madrid. The document stems from a comprehensive process initiated after the 2022 Ministerial Declaration and was shaped by the UfM Regional Platform on Women Empowerment meetings held online and in Barcelona throughout 2023.




The UfM’s commitment to gender equality has been further highlighted by the launch of the Intergovernmental Monitoring Mechanism on Gender Equality in 2020. This mechanism provides policymakers with a comprehensive tool to measure and report progress on women’s rights. The conference will also follow up on this tool and assess its indicators.




The High-Level Conference on Women in Cyprus will facilitate discussions, the exchange of lessons learned, and the presentation of good practices and initiatives among country representatives across the Euro-Mediterranean region. With a focus on women’s economic empowerment, gender and climate change, violence against women and girls, and media narration on gender, the event aims to shape concrete recommendations for the Roadmap for Implementation to advance gender equality.
