The inaugural Gender and Development Forum (GDF) of the UNCTAD 15 Ministerial Conference takes place September 26-28th for three dynamic days of incisive keynote lectures, panel presentations, lightning talks, roundtables, documentaries and interactive interviews. 
The Gender and Development Forum focuses on what is happening to the UNCTAD member countries and in particular, to people of the Global South who are grappling with the immediacy and impact of three intersecting crises - Covid 19 pandemic, climate change and inequalities within and between countries. 
While the GDF recognises how these crises exacerbate inequalities and vulnerabilities, our presenters use feminist analytical tools to create recommendations to move UNCTAD member countries towards greater equity and prosperity for all! 
Join us as we centre feminist perspectives on gender, trade and development and consider development approaches that will move us closer to achieving gender justice, environmental sustainability and economic equity. 
Our distinguished presenters include: 
Her Excellency Froyla Tzalam, Governor General of Belize 
Honourable Mia Amor Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados and Host of UNCTAD 15 
Rebecca Grynspan, Secretary General of UNCTAD 
Honourable Kamina Johnson Smith, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Government          of Jamaica and Chair of the Council for Trade and Economic Development, COTED of CARICOM 
Professor Margaret Kobia, Cabinet Secretary, Public Service and Gender, Republic of Kenya 
Pamela Coke Hamilton, Executive Director of the International Trade Centre 
Leaders and members of feminist networks from the global south, civil society organisations,            UN organisations and academics.
