The report presents the highlights
of Isis-WICCE’s annual peace exposition that was held in 2010 to celebrate 10
years of the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution. The exposition
provided time and an effective platform for grassroots women’s organizations
working in the area of peace and security in Uganda to share successful
strategies and to review the extent to which government has implemented the
resolution and to call upon it to implement the National Action Plan for the
implementation of UNSCR 1325 and Goma Declaration.
It highlighted how various grassroots women’s activists and organizations have
been able to interpret this international framework into one they are able to
utilize in their communities. It also presented a valuable opportunity to share
information, best practices, and successful strategies, and highlight the
challenges and gaps that will inform the way forward in the implementation of
the resolution as well as the National Action Plan.
