Description and results


The project aims to increase the influence in decision-making on peace and security of women from conflict-affected areas in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Syria, and Nigeria. To do so, the project provides training and mentoring to grassroots women’s organizations working in conflict-affected regions. Training and workshops focus on developing skills in women’s leadership, peacebuilding, human rights advocacy and project management.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved capacity of women’s rights civil society organizations (CSOs) to conduct local advocacy on women, peace and security issues; (2) improved capacity of grassroots women and youth to share knowledge on women, peace and security; (3) increased access to national dialogue processes by women’s rights CSOs; and (4) increased access to international advocacy arenas by women’s rights CSOs.
