Feminist Solutions for more Impactful Financing for Peacebuilding
Ahead of the High-Level Meeting on Financing for Peacebuilding in 2022, the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP), Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC), International Civil Society Action Network (ICAN), Kvinna till Kvinna, MADRE, and Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) drafted a background paper. The paper examines the structural barriers faced by diverse women peacebuilders in accessing funds to support their work and presents concrete, innovative and practical solutions to address them. UN Women partnered with the above-mentioned organizations and DPPA/PBSO in order to help highlight and uplift the recommendations persistently put forth by women peacebuilders and women-led organizations and identify concrete actions necessary to implement them.
To provide a space for a critical reflection and discussion on the current state of financing for peacebuilding from a feminist perspective, GNWP, GPPAC, ICAN, Kvinna till Kvinna, and UN Women are hosting a panel discussion on 8 November 2021 on Feminist Solutions for Impactful Financing for Peacebuilding following the 21st Anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security.
