Following is the text of UN Secretary‑General António Guterres’ video message to the third Eurasian Women’s Forum, held today:
My warmest greetings to everyone attending the third Eurasian Women’s Forum.
Our world has changed immeasurably since the Forum last convened in 2018. The new reality, from the COVID-19 pandemic to the climate emergency, demands a fundamental transformation.
Women and girls must be at its heart. Women’s participation and leadership bring more enduring peace agreements, better social‑protection programmes and stronger climate policies.
I welcome this Forum’s emphasis on strong global collaboration to support women’s participation, from peacemaking and technology to economics and health.
I wish you a successful Forum.
