Women contribute to preventing conflict and sustaining peace through:
Building grassroots women’s capacity to participate in peacebuilding decision-making and in the economy
In Liberia, women CSOs have been building the capacities of women to become community mediators at community levels to promote access to justice. Creating awareness of the risk of conflict and violence against women at community levels among various stakeholders is also a priority.
In the Philippines, women CSOs organize community meetings to build solidarity and trust amongst leaders and community members to prevent further violence. A women’s rights group has provided opportunities for the youth to engage in politics in the country by equipping them with knowledge, a platform, and sense of community.
