Synopsis: This side event will officially launch a series of heterodox and feminist policy papers issued by Regions Refocus and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung. Regionally specific to the Caribbean and Africa, the papers offer concrete policy recommendations to achieve sustainable development through heterodox and feminist proposals, drawing on the knowledge of renowned academics and thought leaders in those two regions. Drawing from the Regions Refocus approach of amplifying regional perspectives and fomenting cross-regional learning, this “Cross-Regional Exchange” will enable productive discussion on the policy implications and practical endeavors required to achieve the theme of “Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity” in these two regions.
