Home |  News | Side by Side East Africa endorses Regional Advocacy Strategy on UNSCR 1325

The Steering Committee of Side by Side East Africa has officially endorsed the Regional Advocacy Strategy on UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security. The Regional Advocacy Strategy was developed jointly by the Norwegian Church Aid Thematic Programme on the Reduction of Gender-based Violence in Conflict and Post Conflict Settings (GBV CPC); the Norwegian Church Aid Regional Peace Programme, the All Africa Council of Churches (AACC), the African Council of Religious Leaders – Religions for Peace (ACRL-RfP), the Fellowship of Christian Councils and Churches in the Great Lakes and Horn of Africa (FECCLAHA) and ARIGATOU International.

The endorsement kick-starts the collaboration between Side by Side and the GBV CPC which will be reinforced during 2017. The GBV CPC will support Side by Side to develop national coalitions in East Africa. So far, national coalitions had started in Kenya, Ethiopia and Rwanda with strong support from FECCLAHA and Christian Aid.

Side by Side East Africa takes a stand on UNSCR 1325 with support from the Norwegian Church Aid Thematic Programme on the Reduction of Gender-based Violence in Conflict and Post Conflict Settings.
