Some of the recommendations of this study are now being implemented through a pilot project jointly carried out by Cordaid and the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP) in Burundi. The project will include the establishment of a multi-stakeholder financing mechanism for the implementation of SCR 1325.
In 2010, GNWP together with its members and partners from Afghanistan, Burundi, Canada, DRC, Fiji, Nepal, Netherlands, Philippines, Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Uganda carried out an independent in-country and global civil society monitoring project of SCR 1325 from a unique civil society perspective. The members collected and analyzed data to assess progress in the implementation of SCR 1325 at the country level. The country reports were compiled and collectively analyzed to create a global snapshot of the progress and gaps in implementation, and published in the report “Women Count – Security Council 1325: Civil Society Monitoring Report.”
In 2011 GNWP will conduct a second phase of the civil society in-country and global monitoring of SCR 1325, intended to assess progress from the initial phase, refine indicators where necessary and uncover the effects of recent political developments at the national, regional and global levels.
The civil society in-country and global monitoring of UNSCR 1325 project built on the work of the UN Technical Working Group on Indicators, as well as other initiatives on policy monitoring, such as the study “What the Women Say: SCR 1325 and Participation,” published by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and ICAN.
