Regional Advocacy Strategy on United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325.

Regional Advocacy Strategy Paper

Regional Advocacy Strategy on United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325. This document provides guidance and defines the outcomes and outputs of a Regional Advocacy Strategy on United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325. The strategy was initiated jointly by two programmes of Norwegian Church Aid, the Regional Peace Programme and the Thematic Programme on the Reduction of Gender-Based Violence in Conflict and Post-conflict Settings.

The strategy highlights the gaps in the implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 in Africa, and the need for advocacy for policy changes and implementation to ensure women’s protection from gender-based violence and their increased participation in peace process in particular but also in general leadership and decision making structures.
