Élaboration et Mise en OEuvre de Plans d’Action Nationaux sur la Résolution 1325 du Conseil de Sécurité de l’ONU et ses Résolutions Connexes : Vers la Conception et l’Application des Plans d’Action Nationaux

Ensuring and maintaining peace is strategic to the security and development of Africa, and women in West Africa and indeed the whole of Africa have demonstrated through practical actions their determination to ensure that this is a reality.
Historically, Africans have always found a way not only to prevent confict but to resolve and settle their diferences based on traditional norms and values handed down from one generation to the next. In all African societies there is “no impunity” for crimes committed against humanity. However, we fnd ourselves in an era where the only way to settle a confict  is through the barrel of the gun, and those engaged in fghting such wars, abuse, maim and kill women and children  to humiliate and demoralise their opponents. No wonder, women globally continue to raise their voices and demand for rightful engagement in all stages of peace processes. And it is the recognition of the need to include women in all aspects of peace and security that led the UN Security Council in 2000 to adopt the UNSCR 1325 and its subsequent resolutions (1820, 1888, 1889, and 1960).
