Honoured by the President and the First Lady of Equatorial Guinea, RFPAC held a conference in their capital, Malabo.

Women parliamentarians from Central African member countries met for two days in Equatorial Guinea to share best practices, experiences, testimonies and to suggest practical solutions
for promoting “women and education” (an aspect of MDG 3). The event addressed essential concerns and the discussions that emerged showed that not only is education crucial to development, but that it is also the anchor for all MDGs. Eminent figures also contributed to the success of the conference: the President and First Lady of Equatorial Guinea attended, as
well as experts from the United Nations, various Ministries and universities. RFPAC established legislative plans of action in order to implement regional and national resolutions to reduce gender disparities at all levels of education.

Location: Malabo, Equatorial Guinea.
