Description and results


Canada’s contribution to UN Women will support grassroots South Sudanese women’s organizations and networks to conduct advocacy, enhance gender-mainstreaming and integration of women and girls’ rights and experiences in South Sudan's transitional institutions. The proposed activities include conducting State Peace Conferences across the former 10 states of South Sudan with women to better understand the R-ARCSS; a fund to provide financial support to women’s organizations, including grassroots/community-based organizations, organizations working with women living with disabilities and young women’s organizations to promote peacebuilding and community mediation; provision of technical expertise and gender sensitivity training to key security transitional institutions such as the Demobilization, Disarmament and Reintegration Commission and Strategic Defense and Security Review Board; and the continued deployment of a Gender Advisor to the Office of the IGAD Special Envoy on South Sudan.
