Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the 12th edition of Roadmap to Equality: Keeping you updated on regional developments!

October highlights included several successful launches of the Regional SADC Gender Protocol 2010 Barometer: in Mauritius, Zambia and Zimbabwe. In Botswana, the Barometer was launched at the SADC Secretariat by SADC Executive Secretary Tomaz Augusto Salomão. Lesotho launched the Barometer in September and November will see the launch of the Malawian and South African Barometers in those countries.

The in-country launches of the regional report presents a great platform for Alliance members to engage with their respective national reports, with the view of updating and launching these more country-specific reports in due course. To date, two country reports have been launched in Botswana and Mauritius. Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe are in the process of updating, and expect to launch in the near future.

On 15 October the Alliance convened its monthly teleconference. Unfortunately there was not full participation but minutes are being finalised and will soon be circulated. We are planning the November teleconference for 15 November at 11:00. Please try to reserve an hour for discussion and appraisal.

The Alliance Strategy Meeting report from the August meeting in Windhoek has been circulated and will soon be available on the Gender Links website.
