Regional meeting to discuss ways to realize crucial rights
Ha Noi - Legal empowerment practitioners, government representatives and civil society organization delegates from 17 countries across the Asia-Pacific region met in Ha Noi today for the third annual meeting of the Legal Empowerment Asia Partnership (LEAP). Delegates discussed legal empowerment issues and ways to realize social and economic rights and accelerate achievements of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
Participants also shared lessons learned and collaborated on innovative approaches and new ideas in the legal empowerment field. Especially, discussions focused on various thematic areas, including realizing social and economic rights and achieving the MDGs; land and legal empowerment; and the role of non-governmental organizations, civil societies and social organizations in fostering partnerships on legal empowerment. In particular, the initial findings of a UNDP-commissioned research on the exclusion of women’s access to land in Viet Nam was shared at the meeting.
The Viet Nam Lawyer’s Association (VLA), a non-governmental organization with a key role in legal empowerment, hosted this third annual meeting of LEAP with support from UNDP.
