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

03 November 2009

IANSA is a member of The NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security and we are pleased to announce the launch of a new initiative Monthly Action Points (MAP) on Women, Peace and Security for the UN Security Council with the release of the inaugural MAP for November 2009.

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.
 
For November, in which Austria holds the Security Council Presidency, the MAP provides recommendations on Protection of Civilians, Counter-Terrorism, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea, and Somalia.
 
These briefs are designed for Security Council Members, civil society actors, Member States, and UN entities.
