African countries have made commitments under the different international and regional • instruments that guarantee human rights for women, including CEDAW, Security Council Resolution 1325, the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights, and its Protocol on the Rights of Women in Africa, as well as the BPFA. That obligation also arises from the international commitment to achieve the MDGs by 2015. The Monterrey Consensus embodies an agreement framework for financing for development, including gender equality and women’s empowerment.
