Southeast Asia Training of Trainers Workshop on Women, Peace and Security
Event Type: Training
Date: June 19, 2023 to June 22, 2023
The United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325), a landmark resolution on Women, Peace and Security (WPS) that links gender equality to the maintenance of international peace and security. In recognition of women’s transformative roles in building, maintaining, and fostering peace and security in the region, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations launched its Regional Plan of Action on WPS (RPA WPS) on 5 December 2022. The RPA WPS provides a regional framework for ASEAN Member States to prioritize efforts that promote women’s participation and representation in peace and peacebuilding efforts, including prevention of conflicts, peacebuilding and peacekeeping, protection of women and girls in conflict recovery efforts as well as addressing emerging security challenges, such as climate-related disasters, and cybersecurity.
Civil society plays a key role in implementing and localizing the RPA WPS to respond to the key peace and security issues faced by women and community leaders at the grassroots level. It is critical that communities directly affected by conflict and crises are capacitated to effectively implement, support, and monitor efforts that will be rolled out to implement the RPA WPS.
Against this backdrop, the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP), in partnership with UN Women Indonesia and supported by the Governments of Canada and the Republic of Korea, is hosting a two-day online on 14-15 June 2023 and four-day in-person Training of Trainers workshop on 19-22 June 2023 capacitating national trainers on delivering WPS training, monitoring, and advocacy for civil society leaders in Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Viet Nam.
