Accelerating Impact through Partnerships for Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies

Women’s World 54 seeks to reflect on the strategies used and lessons learned in the implementation of the Just Future programme by civil society partners in Burundi, DRC and South Sudan.

In this edition, the partners report on progress in their advocacy initiatives,
using the knowledge and skills gained from the various interventions. They offer recommendations for the improvement of the Just Future programme and similar
coalitions as well as how the participation of their core constituencies can be enhanced by bringing attention to key areas for their growth and highlights from their regional advocacy efforts which allow them to influence peace and security discourse and practice at that level.

The experiences shared underscore several successful approaches that can be leveraged, scaled and replicated by like- minded entities, by adapting them to their own programmes to advance the Women, Peace and Security agenda.
