Monthly Action Points (MAP) for the Security Council: December 2009

24 November 2009

IANSA is a member of the NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security and we are pleased to share the December 2009 version of our Monthly Action Points (MAP) on Women, Peace and Security for the UN Security Council.

For December, in which Burkina Faso holds the Security Council Presidency, the MAP provides recommendations on country situations, such as reporting on Afghanistan, the mandate renewal of MONUC in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the ongoing situation in Guinea, and considerations for the Golan Heights and Cyprus. The MAP also calls for Security Council Members and Member States to follow up on the recommendations in SCRs 1888 and 1889, particularly the forthcoming appointment of an SRSG.

About the MAP project:

In October, 2010, the international community will mark the 10th Anniversary of the adoption of resolution 1325, the first Security Council resolution on women, peace and security. Throughout the year leading up to this anniversary, the NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security is producing Monthly Action Points, a series of recommendations that show how each United Nations Security Council President can provide leadership on, and how the Security Council as a whole can systematically meet its obligations to women in conflict.

These briefs are designed for Security Council Members, civil society actors, Member States, and UN entities.
