Dear Members of APWW-Meet:
I am extending to all of you a Happy New Year and the wishes that may we continue our struggles with many success and few drawbacks in 2004.
I am sending you a summary of what has been proposed up to now for the NGO Regional B+10 Forum. Because the Forum is only 6 months away, there is much work to do to make it a success. For the initial steps, there is a need to pull together a Convenors Group that can take forth the plans and proposals, in addition there needs to be consultations and research with and among women's groups in the region as to the implementation success and challenges on the Beijing Platform for Action and emerging issues.
I hope that you are able to discuss this Forum with your networks and organizations and participate in what we think will be an important regional NGO forum. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know.
Luz M. Martinez
