New GAPS position paper on the High Level Review of UNSCR 1325

Ahead of the High Level Review of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 taking place in October, GAPS has produced a position paper calling on the UK Government to deliver specific commitments in three priority areas:

1. Support the inclusive and comprehensive implementation of the Women, Peace and Security framework, with a focus on women’s and adolescent girls’ participation.

2. Commit new, dedicated and accessible funding for Women, Peace and Security, and better tracking of all HMG spend for Women, Peace and Security activities.

3. Strengthen leadership and accountability for Women, Peace and Security at global, regional and at UK levels.

You can read more in the position paper, available on our resources page.
