Report on Operationalising SCRes 1325 in South Sudan and Burundi
Institute of Quiet Diplomacy
The Institute of Quiet Diplomacy has produced two reports advising interested parties on how to enhance the implementation on UN SCRes 1325 in Burundi and South Sudan. CARE Burundi supported the research in their country. An element of great value is how the reports focus on actions within specific areas, including female legislators in government, CSOs and 1325 in relation to land conflict and land dispute mechanisms. Other areas include Security and Justice sector reform, Agricultural development, and budgetary support to the Ministry of Gender. These reports are great starting points for considering concrete actions for the mainstreaming of 1325 and gender equality issues in a wide range of conflict, peace and security areas. The reports are available on the wiki here.
