GNWP carries out its advocacy agenda at various levels: global, regional, sub-regional, national, sub-national and local. It engages with governmental, inter-governmental and multilateral structures, soliciting accountability from government, the UN and fellow CSOs to honor their obligations under the
Security Council Resolutions on WPS and related legal mechanisms, such as the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and the Arms Trade Treaty.
GNWP’s international advocacy in New York complements its local, sub-national, national and regional advocacy and programming. GNWP co-sponsors and organizes side events that are critical for the overall promotion of the WPS agenda and more effective global implementation of the WPS resolutions. These side events range from the launching of its annual publication “Women Count” on civil society monitoring of the WPS resolution, to panel discussions on Financing for NAP 1325 implementation, and the facilitation of women’s participation in peace processes, such as the ones in Colombia and the Philippines. Moreover, GNWP arranges bilateral meetings between its members and partners and government missions to the UN, representatives of UN agencies and donors to enable direct dialogues and generate concrete commitments.
