Advancing Women’s Participation in Post-Conflict Reconstruction

A Virtual High-Level Event on the Launch of the Joint Report and UN Action Plan

In light of the twentieth anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations (UN) Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000), the UAE and GIWPS are proud to launch a Joint UAE-Georgetown Report and a UN Action Plan on “Advancing Women’s Participation in Post-Conflict Reconstruction.”

Join report authors for a high-level discussion on major conclusions and findings to accelerate women’s meaningful participation as decision-makers, implementers, and beneficiaries of post-conflict reconstruction. Participants will reflect on four key areas of reconstruction, including governance and political participation, sustainable economic revitalization, the justice sector and rule of law, and security sector reform. They will outline concrete recommendations from a year-long jointly sponsored panel series with distinguished speakers and subject experts that the UN Member States and agencies can implement to ensure gender is mainstreamed in post-conflict activities.
