HRH Princess Basma with UN Resident Coordinator in Jordan Christine McNab and UNIFEM Regional Programme Director Haifa Abu Ghazaleh at a ceremony to mark International Women's Day on Tuesday (Petra photo)

AMMAN (JT) — HRH Princess Basma on Tuesday commended the achievements of women's organisations in the Kingdom and the spirit of cooperation and partnership between governmental and nongovernmental agencies working to realise the goals of the women's movement.

She also recognised the important contributions and the part played by Arab NGOs as active and vibrant actors in civil society, and in particular the role of local NGOs and women's movements in promoting women's participation in the country's development process.

Paying tribute to the work of the Jordanian Women's Union, the General Federation of Jordanian Women and the Jordanian National Forum for Women, Princess Basma said: “The strong partnership formed between the Jordanian National Commission for Women and the women's movement was a valuable asset in addressing the needs of the Jordanian women's sector as a whole.”

Her remarks were made at a ceremony organised by the UN family in Jordan to mark International Women's Day, under the theme, “Celebrating Women 10 years after Beijing.”

The event coincides this year with worldwide preparations to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Fourth World Conference of Women in Beijing, the largest conference in the history of the United Nations, which sought to mobilise the global women's movement into strategic alliances and collective power.

Commending Jordan's commitment to gender equity, the Princess referred to His Majesty King Abdullah's efforts in bringing about new achievements for women. In particular, she made reference to the “recent appointments to mid-level management positions in the public sector, which reflect the vision of His Majesty, which calls for total support for Jordanian women's advancement.”

Remarking on the heightened focus at different levels on the need for reform, the Princess noted that “both nationally and internationally we are all experiencing an exciting as well as challenging period of reform. Here in Jordan, His Majesty King Abdullah is pushing for important changes creating new opportunities for women. At the same time, the comprehensive reforms within the UN called for by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, should also create a favourable impact for women's empowerment worldwide.”

Underlining the increasing role of NGOs in the development process, the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Centre for Arab Women Training and Research in Tunisia joined forces in the production of the Arab regional report entitled:”10 Years after Beijing: The Role and Contribution of the Arab NGOs.” UNIFEM officials made a presentation on the report at Tuesday's ceremony.

In her address at the gathering, UN Resident Coordinator in Jordan Christine McNab outlined the picture of women's situation in the past few years in the Arab world, noting that Arab states have endorsed new perspectives in developmental planning for women. Meanwhile, she said, Arab policy makers have formulated and adopted development strategies that invite civil society to join governments in assuming the responsibility for development initiatives.

She acknowledged the partnership that is developing between government and civil society, working towards achieving a common agenda for improving the status of women.

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Beijing conference, the United Nations General Assembly held its 49th session between Feb. 29 - March 11 this year to review the progress achieved in implementing the Beijing Platform for Action as reflected from the national reports submitted by various governments and NGOs.

The Jordan National Commission on Women gave a brief on the Commission on the Status of Women's 49th Session, which was held in New York in February and attended by Princess Basma. The presentation reviewed the major global challenges and achievements in implementing the Beijing Platform for Action, followed by strategic priorities for future work outlined in Annan's speech.

Princess Basma Bint Talal of Jordan

Long-serving human development advocate

Princess Basma Bint Talal of Jordan has worked to promote global issues for nearly 30 years, most notably helping to foster gender equity, development and children’s well-being. An honorary UNDP Human Development Ambassador since May 1993, she has launched a number of national, regional and international initiatives on health, education, population, the environment and the advancement of women. She is committed to strengthening the capacity of local communities and groups and advocating socio-economic development methods that increase community participation.

A judging panel member at the 2002 UNDP Awards for Human Development ceremony, Princess Basma helped choose six National Human Development Reports along with then President Fernando Henrique Cardoso of Brazil as winners. "At both the international and national levels, the reports have proved to be an indispensable tool in fostering a more people-centred development process," she explained.

At the launch of the 2003 Human Development Report, she emphasized another reason why such reporting served a vital purpose. “The analysis which the Report provides of the world’s progress in meeting the Millennium Development Goals is in itself a masterly achievement, and as an action plan the Millennium Development Compact introduces a valuable tool for helping to reach a wide range of objectives,” she said.

Princess Basma took a leading role in establishing the Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development, the Queen Zein Al Sharaf Institute for Development, and the Jordanian National Commission for Women. She was a member of the International Advisory Group to the UN Secretary-General in preparation for the 1995 Conference on Women. She is a UN Population Fund Goodwill Ambassador, and a member of the UNESCO International Advisory Board of the International Council on Social Welfare and the UNESCO International Panel on Democracy and Development.
