Women Parliamentarians’ Caucus discuss advocacy opportunities in Belize

Posted: Friday, October 20, 2023. 2:29 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: UNICEF Belize continues to support Belize’s Women Parliamentarians’ Caucus in Belize.

There are 46 women parliamentarians in the National Assembly (both chambers) and including presiding officers.

“United under a bi-partisan caucus for women and children, these women form a Women’s Parliamentary Caucus and UNICEF is supporting them harnessing their leadership and influence on behalf of women and children,” UNICEF Belize said.

This week, through the Spotlight Initiative and with support of the European Union the Women’s Parliamentary Caucus held a retreat to identify key strategic interests and advocacy opportunities for the next 2 years.

The caucus also discussed preparation for the development of a Strategic Action Plan for 2023-2024.

“The establishment of the Women Parliamentarians’ Caucus (WPC) of Belize and its subsequent endorsement as a joint standing committee of the National Assembly, sets a strong precedence to ensure that programs, activities, projects, and interventions apply a gender transformative approach,” UNICEF reiterated.
