FAWCO is proud to be a non-governmental organization with special consultative status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council, a status supported by the work of our Global Issues Teams.

FAWCO's Resolutions and Recommendations for 2017 - 2019 establish our commitment to improve the lives of women and girls worldwide, especially in the areas of education, the environment, health and human rights. Therefore, our Global Issues Teams focus on these four issues.

The Global Issues Teams serve as a resource for our members. As you read the information in these pages, you might decide to get involved in one of the Teams. Join our team; pursue your passions.
