In our humanitarian world more men should speak up and  stand up for the rights of women as well as promote women participation in all levels of engagement from organizational management to programme implementation.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

Personal Commitments

IOM/UN Migration will invest more in education, health and advocating for the protection of the human, economic and social rights of girls and women and boys and men. This must go hand in hand with increased government commitment and targeted outreach (media campaigns, conferences, workshops etc) to raise awareness in eliminating violence against women and girls and giving them the space to voice their opinions.
IOM/UN Migration will continue advocating, through its policy initiatives and programmatic activities in EHOA, for all migrants (documented and undocumented, women and girls men and boys), including IDPs, to be included in all national government responses in the fight against COVID-19 and any regional and/or country relevant socioeconomic stimulus measures.
