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.

Planning Meeting for Leadership Development Activities in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Nepal.

The Peace Centre, Karibu Jeunesse Nouvelle (KJN) and Association des Femmes des Medias (AFEM) work in partnership to strengthen women’s capacity as change agents in peace building and post-conflict governance in South Kivu, Eastern D.R.C. On 29th May an online meeting was held for partners to assess the current situation as impacted by COVID-19, understand the implications for planned activities and agree on a way forward. With a steep increase in gender-based violence, women’s exclusion from decision-making on COVID-19 response and limited access to information on preventive measure, the partners agreed to prioritise addressing these issues. As a result, the meeting defined future activities to include, translating key messages on COVD-19 prevention into local languages, radio talk shows and community meetings by women peace builders to sensitise the public on COVID-19. The Peace Centre also committed to conduct a training webinar on wellness and self-care to support the wellbeing and work of women human rights defenders (WHRDs) in Bukavu.

On 16th June, the Peace Centre and National Alliance for Women Human Rights Defenders (NAWHRD) Nepal also held an online meeting to discuss the current COVID-19 dynamics and prepare for the upcoming training of Deputy Mayors and District Vice Chairpersons in Kathmandu on gender budgeting, gender-responsive district planning and wellness under the theme Transformed Leadership for Transformation. The partners agreed on a timeline and methodology for the planned profiling of the work and impact of the institute’s alumnae in Nepal since 2007 including the previously trained Deputy Mayors and District Vice-Chairpersons.
