    CPPF organized a one-day, closed-door meeting on gender and politics in Latin America and the Caribbean at the request of the UN Department of Political Affairs. The meeting brought together academics and practitioners on and from the region, with a diverse group of representatives from the UN, to examine the recent struggles for gender equality in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region, and how this impacts political agendas in the region. Although LAC has made significant strides towards the equality of women and LGBT population in recent years, a push by conservative movements across the region by what has been called “anti-rights” groups (echoing a world-wide phenomenon) has placed these issues squarely in the center of public discourse.

  • 25.Let’s Talk About Drugs: Policy Coherence and the Sustainable Development Goals (New York)

    CPPF, in partnership with the International Peace Institute (IPI), hosted the launch of a joint report on drugs, sustainable development, and the drive for policy coherence. The event, which took place on February 22, centered on how drug policy can help or hinder member states’ efforts to achieve the SDGs. The forum also examined the findings following a year of work by a group of researchers and policy makers—convened by CPPF and IPI—on ways in which the drug policy agenda overlaps with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). CPPF Program Manager Sabrina Stein, who co-authored the report, was a member of the panel. During her remarks, she addressed the concern that drug policy has not been developed in concert with the SDGs, and described six concrete recommendations from the paper that would enable this mutual consideration. The paper is available on the CPPF and IPI websites.
