Commission on Women and Development (CWD)

The Commission on Women and Development is an advisory body created by the Royal Decree of 14 December 1994 as a consultative body on matters of gender equality.
The Commission resorts under the Ministry of Development Cooperation and is composed of French-speaking and Dutch-speaking representatives of federations of development NGOs, women’s councils and inter-university councils (VLIR/CIUF), representatives of the DGDC, and ten experts, co-opted for their competence in the area of gender analysis.
The Commission on Women and Development was created to support and enhance the awareness of equal opportunities for women and men in the formulation and implementation of the Belgian policy on development cooperation. As an advisory body, it can formulate recommendations, both on request and on its own initiative, as well as organise specific awareness-raising events.
