Civil Society Input into the Global Survey on Women, Peace and Security
The Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP), in partnership with Cordaid, International
Civil Society Action Network (ICAN), and the NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security (NGO WG) distributed the CSO surveys to collect the views, concerns and recommendations of civil society organizations (CSOs).
The 2016 report is based on findings from 17 FGDs and one international 1325 expert conference, held in 16 countries with over 200 participants.1 The report informs the Global Study on Women, Peace and Security, called by UNSCR 2122 to “highlight examples of good practice, implementation gaps and challenges, and priorities for action," to ensure that civil society voices are adequately reflected in the study.
The 2015 CSO survey report is based on 317 CSO surveys collected from organizations based in 71 different countries, providing a wealth of quantitative and qualitative data reflecting the views
of CSO working on the ground to implement the women, peace and security agenda.
