CanWaCH is excited to share the release of our 2021 Global Health Impact Report! The report features emerging data from humanitarian initiatives, key findings from the first cohort of the Canadian Collaborative for Global Health, and identifies priorities for capacity strengthening and knowledge sharing within the sector.
During International Development Week (IDW), international cooperation advocates and organizations called on the government to invest $1.5 billion to end the pandemic, take faster action on the fight against climate change, and help build peace around the world.
Over the course of the week, 125 sector representatives participated in 60 meetings with Members of Parliament, Senators, and offices of the Prime Minister, Minister for International Development, Minister for Women and Gender Equality and Youth, and Minister of Finance.
Through the Equal Futures Network, in collaboration with Le Réseau des femmes en environnement, CanWaCH will be hosting a virtual side event during the sixty-sixth session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW66).
Starting at 4 p.m. EDT on March 15, our 90 minute solutions-oriented panel will unpack the inherent inequalities and patterns of injustice that underpin climate change and its impacts, and propose a way forward for a more just, intersectional and inclusive global climate response.
Get to know some of the projects and programs from our members geared to improve the health, rights and wellbeing of people around the world, check out the latest impact stories here.
The Equal Futures Network is currently undergoing a GBA+ assessment. Your honest feedback through this survey, by February 18, 2022, is welcome and appreciated. Findings will also inform our future programs and initiatives such as the first-ever Gender Equity Summit in June 2022.
Our first data drive of 2022 is officially underway! Add your data to the CanWaCH Project Explorer to showcase your organization’s contributions to global health and gender equality and be a part of the story of Canada’s progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
