Guillermo Fernández de Soto Valderrama

Today more than ever the respect for human rights, the role of women and gender approach, as well as the climate change perspective, are part of the equation of peace with legality, justice, development and security that we are implementing in my country.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Provide all the staff at the Colombian Mission with the conceptual tools to promote a gender perspective throughout the work in all the Committees and within the Mission.

  • Participate at the highest possible level in the Gender Equality related events organized by the United Nations in New York in order to emphasize the need for this issue to be a priority in the agenda (Meetings, conference and delegations).
