Since the groundbreaking UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325, there are now six supporting resolutions on women and peace and security — UNSCRs 1820, 1888, 1889, 1960, 2106 and 2122 — which have reinforced the normative standards for ensuring women’s participation in decision-making, conflict prevention and conflict resolution and recovery.
This publication focuses particularly on GNWP’s Localization of UNSCR 1325 and 1820 program, which translates the rhetoric of the women and peace and security resolutions into actions that make a difference in the lives of women, men, girls and boys in conflict-affected communities in Colombia, Nepal, the Philippines, Sierra Leone and Uganda. The publication illustrates how the program directly engages local authorities, traditional leaders and grassroots women’s groups in implementing the resolutions in local communities. It also provides examples of how women and peace and security commitments are mainstreamed in local policy development and planning processes
