21 Nov 2013
Kuwait: The first Afro-Asian Women and Sport Forum taking place in Kuwait and jointly organised by the IOC, OCA and ANOCA came to a close on Wednesday with a clear promise and active commitment to furthering the development of women’s roles in the world of sport in the two continents.

Opening addresses from OCA President Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah and ANOCA President Lassana Palenfo set the tone for the three-day event from November 18-20 as they outlined the achievements made and the challenges ahead for women in sport.

The Forum, attended by 130 representatives from all 98 African and Asian NOCs, as well as delegates from the United Nations agencies, NGOs, the IOC, ANOCA, the OCA, and Continental and National Federations, concluded with the drawing up of an action plan reaffirming the delegates’ determination to include women representatives in all committees, monitor and communicate women’s participation in the world of sport at all levels and organise an Afro-Asian Women and Sport Forum every two years.
