UNDP- IRAQ is seeking cooperation from other UN agencies, the NGO and CBO community, both national and international to map out activities facilitating or supporting women’s peace building activities in Iraq across the different governorates.
The latest incidents are once again highlighting the importance of addressing this very important issue and also know that women can be major catalysts for change and peace in their communities and their country as a whole.
Through conducting this mapping the UNDP Iraq will make an assessment of the challenges and obstacles facing women in the abovementioned areas, as well as identifying successful projects which can be used as examples of best practices. The findings will be published by the UNDP Iraq in form of a report, and international conferences are planned with the aim of raising awareness on Iraqi women’s situation among relevant stakeholders.
The chapter of the publication will contain the following sections:
1. Situation analysis on the impact of past and current conflicts on the life of people in different communities of Iraq.
2. Overview of the current activities pertaining to reconciliation and peace building at the community level with a special focus on those led by women or including women.
3. Case studies reflecting the different formats of programs/projects taking place with a focus on the impact of these interventions on the life of the beneficiaries and the communities in which they live.
4. Analysis of information provided by relevant NGOs, CBOs and other agencies and informed by the case studies.
5. Lessons learned
6. Recommendations (which could be attached in a separate document baring in mind that some NGOs and other agencies may not necessarily be in a position to endorse the recommendations)
All the Best
