The Groupement des activistes de Madagascar at CSW62
This year, Lova Andrianina, a member of the Groupement des activistes de Madagascar, is one of the representatives of Madagascar at the sixty-second edition of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW62) at the UN, in New York, from the 12 to 23rd March.
She had the opportunity to discuss and exchange different perspectives and strategies to promote the development of girls and women in rural areas during this international meeting. Was also said “the importance of the government’s accountability to the people so that they can fully enjoy their rights but also contribute fully to the socio-economic development of the country,” as learned from the group of activists from Madagascar.
According to activists in Madagascar, for the country, accountability and implementation of actions are the most important to lead to development because it is not enough just to be present internationally but especially to bring change back in the country.
The main theme of CSW62 this year is “Girls’ Empowerment and Rural Women”. Representatives of Member States, United Nations entities and ECOSOC-accredited non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from all regions of the world gathered to attend the session.

All aspects that have an impact on the empowerment of women in rural areas were negotiated during the event.
