At the same website Moderator’s summaries of high level round tables and panel sicussions are to be foud:
* High-level round table on “Implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action and the outcomes of the twenty-third special session of the General Assembly and its contribution to shaping a gender perspective in the realization of the Millennium Development Goals”
* Panel discussion on “Linkages between implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals”
* Panel discussion on “Women’s economic empowerment in the context of the global economic and financial crisis”
* Panel discussion on “Implementing the internationally agreed development goals and commitments in regard to gender equality and the empowerment of women – contribution to the 2010 Annual Ministerial Review of the Economic and Social Council”

For the moment this is our last blog. There are still several subjects to write about on my list, but other commitments have to prevail for the moment. Maybe later.
