TI views corruption and rule of law as two sides of the same coin; rule of law prevents corruption and corruption undermines the rule of law.

TI is unique also in its reach with more than 100 chapters in the movement, of which two-thirds are based in the 'South'. This diversity brings with it a range of experiences to share and learn from as the post-2015 agenda is debated and formulated.

He has been involved with the Chapter from early on, shaping the first two strategic plans which helped establish a strong TI-Zambia.

The lack of access to sanitation and drinking water disproportionately affects women and girls and without achieving gender equality we will not achieve true access to water and sanitation. For example women spend over 200 million hours a day walking for water. The time that it takes to fetch water prevents women from earning a living, which would help to lift their families out of poverty and also increase national wealth.

For 14 years prior to that appointment she had served as Director of the Southern Africa Project of the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. In that capacity she worked with South African lawyers to secure the release of thousands of political prisoners from jail.

Among her recent academic roles have been the Mulligan Distinguished Visiting Professor in International Law at Fordham Law School (2013); the Robert Drinan Visiting Professor in Human Rights at the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C.

12/15/2013 21:50:005. Promoting equality, including social equity, gender equality and women's empowerment: 6. Conflict prevention, post-conflict peacebuilding and the promotion of durable peaceYvonne AkothYesI would to be a member of this committee because as a young woman with a degree in peace and conflict studies, and representing the biggest organization (with more than 10 million members) that addresses the needs of girls and young women .i.e the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), I am the impact violence has in the lives of girls and women. WAGGGS has championed peace programmes for youth all over the world and has worked closesly with Nobel Laureate Leymah Gbowee, who was awarded for her non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women's rights to full participation in peace-building work. She has inspired and mentored many young women in the Girl Guide Movement to be agents of social change. I started working on conflict resolution from the age of 16 as a member of the Eastern Africa Model United Nations (EAMUN), focusing on disarmarment. Presently, I coordinate a violence prevention programme in the Kenya Girl Guides Association supported by UN Women. I have just finished my term serving in the World Health Organization - Violence Prevention Alliance as a participant. My committment to peace and conflict resolution to transformation grew to a higher level having been appointed Kenya's official youth delegate to the Horn of Africa Youth Form in Djibouti 2010. This was important because I addressed the impact of conflict in the lives of young people in the region. Being the only female delegate, I was privilaged to speak out against conflict because of the impact it has in the lives of womena nd girls. I also increased advocacy on non-violence conflict resolution strategies during the International Youth Violence Prevention Conference in Dar es Salaam August 2012 and the 3rd Pan-African Youth Leadership Summiti in Ouagadougou, December 2012. My local organization, Kenya Girl Guides Association has demonstrated its commitment to peace and conflict transformation through a Peace Educationa Programme implemented in the Dadaab Refugee Camp. As a Post2015 Ambassador for my organization, I look forward to ensuring peace and conflict resolution strategies such as good governance, respect for human rights and democracy are included in the next development agenda.This includes championing non-violent means to prevent or resolve conflicts in Africa.yvonnea@kgga.co.keYvonne AKothYesThe World Association of Girl Guide and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) is the biggest organization with more than 10 million members advocating for the needs of girls and young women. WAGGGS focus has always been on gender equality and women empowerment, championing the rights of girls to access education, health care, economic empowerment opportunities, a life free of violence, women and leadership etc. I would like to be a member of this committee because I will bring in relevant expertise and experiences having worked for womens organizations for the past 7 years. As a representative of WAGGGS, I have had the opportunity to implement sexual and reproductive health programmes, gender based violence programmes and programmes on women and leadership in the Kenya Girl Guides Association. This includes representing the needs of women and girls in local and international platforms such as the World AIDS Campaign (WAC) and UNDP CSO consultation on HIV/AIDS and the Millenium Development Goals among other key platforms. Having worked at a regional level especially in the socio-cultural and economic aspect on HIV in the lives of girls and young women in Africa, I believe gender equality in totality will put an end to major obstacles impeding the growth of girls and young women in Africa. Participating in this committee will accord me the opportunity to share my experiences over the years on the role of women in development. I will also join fellow committee members to ensure gender equality is placed at the forefront of the next Post2015 Development Agenda.yvonnea@kgga.co.ke

For six years, Ivens worked in different spaces on behalf of the Pensamento Legal, including at the Movimento de Adolescentes do Brasil (MAB). At MAB, Ivens was able to work in partnership with other youth organizations in his country promoting the creation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies and programs for young people and adolescents, particularly in the areas of sexual and reproductive rights, women’s rights and HIV/AIDS. After his work with Pensamento Legal and MAB, he joined the Global Youth Coalition on HIV/AIDS where he worked for three years being able to develop a more in-depth knowledge of the Latin American context of young people, especially those living with HIV/AIDS. Ivens has been part of the Youth Coalition for Sexual and Reproductive Rights since 2009.ivens@youthcoalition.org
