Financing Women, Peace and Security

gnwp

GNWP and partners Cordaid and UN Women led the formation of the Women and Peace and Security Financing Discussion Group. This Group is comprised of donor governments, post-conflict Member States, UN entities and civil society partners. It aims to: present concrete proposals to increase funding for the
implementation of UNSCR 1325 and 1820 and the supporting WPS resolutions; and propose accountability and transparency mechanisms in the generation and usage of financial resources for the implementation of UNSCR 1325 and 1820 and the supporting WPS resolutions.

In 2012, GNWP and Cordaid commissioned a publication that summarizes the research on the financing mechanism for the Women, Peace and Security, and examines the resources needed for the implementation of UNSCR 1325. It can be found here.

A new, comprehensive and updated publication on financing WPS will be launched on the Anniversary of the UNSCR 1325, in October 30, 2014.
