The Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), in partnership with the Jordanian National Commission for Women, organized a national consultative workshop on the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action after 25 years. The two-day workshop, held on 26-27 February 2019 in Amman, brought together representatives of governmental institutions and non-governmental organizations to discuss the first draft of the national report and identify gaps in and sources of needed data and information.
