Positioning adolescent girls at the center of the research and policy agenda, the general objectives of the conference will be to:

  • Consider the gendered impact of the following four major development challenges: demographic trends, the global economic crises, the impact of climate change, and the use of new information and communication technology (ICT); and explore both the risks and opportunities they represent to adolescent girls;
  • Review existing policies affecting adolescent girls, with the aim of identifying effective approaches;
  • Showcase lessons learned as well as opportunities for addressing knowledge gaps;
  • Provide a platform for mobilizing partnerships towards advocacy efforts around the gender and human rights agenda.
