The UN Women Executive Board will convene for this year’s second regular session on 10 and 11 September at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

The Chair of the Session, Ivana Pajević, Ambassador and Deputy Permanent Representative of Montenegro to the United Nations, will introduce the Session and UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka will deliver opening remarks.

The session will focus on engaging Member States in a structured dialogue on financing to guide UN Women’s efforts to increase and sustain regular resource contributions, increase high-quality non-core (earmarked voluntary contributions to UN Women for specific programmes) funding, and to strengthen mechanisms for effective use and reporting of funds received.

The Executive Board will consider the Joint UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF and UN Women report on cost recovery as well as the joint response to the joint meeting of the Executive Board segment on working methods.

The meta-analysis of evaluations managed by UN Women in 2017 and a preliminary analysis of the financial and other implications of resolution A/RES/72/279 will be discussed.

Additional briefings will cover UN Women’s operational response at the country level in Afghanistan, the report of the joint field visit of the Executive Board’s Bureaus to Uganda and presentation of UN Women Bureau’s field visit to Malawi.

The detailed agenda as well as all official documents of the Second regular session 2018 can be accessed on the Executive Board webpage or the PaperSmart-portal of the United Nations.
