Mano River Union (MRU) covers Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone

The conference will build upon the outcomes of the MRU session held in October 2016 led by African Diaspora, and focus on the role of rural women in developing sustainable and resilient rural communities.

Women in rural areas continue to make significant contributions to the social and economic circumstances in our society. They help to maintain a sustainable and productive agriculture sector as the essential economic, environmental and social basis of rural areas which contributes to rural development, sustainable food production, and to a potential creation of jobs for rural women.

Both the SDGs Agenda 2030 and the African Union Agenda 2063 envision "a high standard of living, quality of life and well-being for all citizens in all spheres of life which involve “incomes, jobs and decent work, poverty, inequality and hunger, social security and protection including persons with disabilities, modern, affordable and liveable habitats, and quality basic services, biodiversity, conservation, and sustainable natural resource management, water security, health and nutrition, climate resilience and natural disasters preparedness, education.”

The conference aims to highlight the role of rural women in building sustainable and resilient rural communities, in the perspective of meeting the African Union Agenda 2063 and SDGs Agenda 2030; and to discuss potential solutions to the challenges.  Speakers from:
·        Cote d’Ivoire
·        Guinea
·        Liberia
·        Sierra Leone
·        USA – African Diaspora
·       USA – Non African Diaspora
