The booklet is designed to assist women from the Asia Pacific Region in their lobbying and advocacy work in relation to the review of the Beijing Platform for Action (BPFA).
It is based on the report of the Regional NGO Symposium in preparation for Beijing plus Five, or Women 2000 which was held in Thailand in September 1999.
It contains a summary of the Symposium Declaration and the major issues of concern identified by the women NGO's who took part. These drew on country and regional reports on the local implementation of the BPFA.
One notable section of the document is the section entitled The Critical Areas of Concern.
