FORUM-ASIA, in collaboration with Solidarity for ASEAN Peoples' Advocacies - SAPA, launched the 'Report on the ACWC+10: Assessing the Commission's impact on Protecting Women and Children's Rights in ASEAN'.

The report presents a review of the ASEAN Commission of Women and Children (ACWC), takes stock of its efforts in promoting, protecting and advocating for the rights of women and children across the region, and makes recommendations for the future.

FORUM-ASIA is proud to launch its Working Paper Series 8: Climate Justice – Navigating the Discourse.

The Working Paper on Climate Justice
identifies climate change as a human rights issue, where the principles of equity and justice as well as the recognition of fundamental freedoms are cornerstone requisites for the mitigation and adaption to climate change.
