China calls for more cooperation with U.S. in gender equality (2)


13:45, February 28, 2012

Meng briefed the delegates about efforts made by ACWF to help women in rural area to achieve sustainable development, such as providing financial support, improving their health, offering more education and training opportunities.

However, Meng said, it was still a long way to realize gender equality in China's rural areas. Poverty, discrimination and lack of resource and representative in decision-making impact the advancement of rural women.

Meanwhile, climate change, rapid urbanization and industrialization have posed new challenges for rural women to fully achieve sustainable development.

Meng said China hoped the UN Sustainable Development Conference, which would be held in Brazil, could objectively reflect the rural women's concerns, especially those from the developing countries, and yield positive results.

Wang Min, China's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations, said in his opening remarks that he hoped the parties concerned could share experience and contribute to achieving rural women's sustainable development.
