The Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP), in partnership with the Permanent Mission of Canada to the United Nations, is organizing a panel discussion featuring local women peacebuilders from Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Lebanon and Nigeria to share insights from the Localization of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda and the uses of Gender Based Analysis Plus (GBA+) for more effective implementation of WPS. The objectives of the panel discussion are: 

  1. To enable local women peacebuilders from Colombia, DRC, Lebanon and Nigeria to present their experiences in implementing the WPS resolutions, including the use of GBA+ in their work;
  2. To discuss how Localization lends itself to timely, practical and effective responses to conflict and crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic and why it should be a standard practice in implementation; and
  3. To generate more support for local women peacebuilders’ work in Localizing the WPS agenda from policymakers, donors and civil society from around the world.

Interpretation will be available in Arabic, American Sign Language (ASL), French and Spanish.
