Support to President Halonen's development policy related activities


President Halonen leads and is a member of many international organizations and networks that work with sustainable development, human rights, gender equality, the status of women and girls, sexual and reproductive health and rights, democratic and good governance, and climate issues. This work contributes directly and indirectly to the objectives of the official Finnish development policy. Among other duties President Halonen is an alternate Co-Chair of the Steering Group of the Every Woman Every Child and the Global Strategy for Women's, Children's and Adolescents' Health and Co-Chair of the WHO/OHCHR Health and Human Rights Working Group. She is also a UN designated Drylands Ambassador of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification and a UN Global Champion for Disaster Risk Reduction. In her development related work President Halonen receives support from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs (KEO-40). The proposed project funds (30.000 euros) cover the travel expenses of President Halonen and the official supporting her work when these expenses are not covered by the organizing/inviting party.
