Involving the women of West Africa in conflict prevention


The 8th edition of the Open Doors Day on the implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000) and the subsequent resolutions on women, peace and security, was held on 11 December in Dakar. Organised by UNOWAS, ECOWAS and UN WOMEN, the goal of this day was to initiate a dialogue between regional women and regional actors on the implementation of the three-year action plan (2017-20) of the ECOWAS Conflict Prevention Framework’s (CPCC) component on women, peace and security. This programme, which recognises the growing involvement of women and young people in the fight against the cross-border crime, terrorism and radicalisation that affects West Africa, aims to strengthen the involvement of women in peace building and in the prevention and resolution of conflicts.
