The project aims to enhance women’s engagement in peace and security. Civil society, the United Nations and Member States established the Women’s Peacebuilding and Humanitarian Fund to steer resources directly to women’s civil society organizations at the forefront of conflict prevention, conflict resolution and recovery efforts. The Women’s Peacebuilding and Humanitarian Fund supports initiatives that enhance women’s engagement, leadership and empowerment in conflict prevention by: (1) undertaking advocacy and technical support; (2) ensuring women’s meaningful participation by promoting favorable attitudes towards their participation in conflict prevention; (3) addressing barriers to women’s representation and participation in peace negotiations; and (4) ensuring that women’s and girls’ safety, health and security are assured, and that their human rights are respected through measures that prevent acts of violence, facilitate access to services for survivors, and strengthen accountability. There has been indisputable evidence that women’s participation and inclusion in peace and security processes strengthen the protection efforts of peacekeepers, improves prevention efforts against radicalization and the spread of extremism, and accelerates economic recovery through more diverse peace dividends. Evidence also shows that women’s significant participation results in a more sustainable peace, through inclusive peace talks and implementation of peace agreements.
