The documents that emerged from the decade review of implementing the Beijing Platform for Action (BPFA), such as the country reports, reports of the Sub-regional Decade Review meetings, the Outcome and Way Forward of the Seventh African Regional Conference on Women, declarations and agreements at the end of the Decade Review process and the Solemn Declaration on Gender Equality in Africa adopted by African Heads of States and Governments, provide incisive information that can be used to design further strategies for achieving gender equality and women's empowerment in Africa beyond the first decade of the BPFA. The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) as the United Nations regional organizations responsible for monitoring the implementation of the Platform for Action in Africa, set out to develop a strategy to guide the continent's follow up on the outcomes of the Decade Review processes.
