Shaping the Future We Want: Country Sustainability, Migrating Women and MDGs

Welcome to this week’s roundup of progress initiatives, articles and reports.

  • Innovation Africa Twitterati. In concordance with the upcoming launch of the Africa 2063 strategy and the role of social media in shaping what will be relevant in this panafrican strategy, the Science, Technology, and Globalization Project at Harvard Kennedy School's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs will regularly recognize 63 leaders to follow on Twitter.

  • Shaping Our Collective Futures by The African Women’s Development and Communication Network calls for contributions related to the state of women in the context of the upcoming review of the  the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD+20) that was implemented 20 years before. Will we see more progress in gender equality or do we risk going backwards? And what needs to be done to safeguard this progress? The seventh and special edition of the African Women's Journal will seek to address such issues and aspires to make the voices of those most hidden by inequalities (those living with disabilities, pastoralist communities, slum dwellers, rural, indigenous, religious or ethnic minorities) heard.

We hope you enjoyed this review. Stay tuned the same time next week for another roundup of the week that was.

Yours in progress,
