Capacity-Building in Bong, Liberia

In October 2012, GNWP and its members conducted community focused capacity building workshops in Bong and Grand Bassa counties of Liberia. Bong and Grand Bassa were chosen due to the high rates of sexual violence in these counties. The objectives of the workshops were 1) to raise awareness on UNSCR 1325 and 1820, and the National Action Plan of Liberia ; and 2) to solicit feedback from actors at local level on radio and television programs that had been produced in order to improve the messages of the programs. The workshops included an overview of UNSCR 1325 and 1820; and overview of the LNAP; a session on conflict analysis; viewing and listening sessions; and a workshop/ action planning session on community actions to be taken to further the implementation of the LNAP and the resolutions.
