Introduction

  1. The Committee expresses its appreciation to the State party for its combined second and third periodic report, which followed the Committee’s guidelines for the preparation of reports, while regretting that it did not refer to the Committee’s general recommendations. The Committee also expresses its appreciation for the oral presentation, which elaborated on the recent developments in the implementation of the Convention in Namibia. It takes note of the written replies to the list of issues and questions raised by the pre-session working group and the oral responses to the questions posed by the Committee, while regretting that they insufficiently addressed the Committee’s questions.


  2. The Committee commends the State party on its high-level delegation, headed by the Minister of Gender Equality and Child Welfare, and expresses its appreciation for the constructive dialogue held between the delegation and the members of the Committee.


  3. The Committee notes with satisfaction that the report includes reference to the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action.


  4. The Committee notes with appreciation that the report was prepared in a participatory process involving government bodies and non-governmental organizations.


  5. The Committee commends the State party for its early ratification, in May 2000, to the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women.
