Germany-2010 Commitments

Policy | Financial | Civil Society Engagement

  1. It is time to move towards more concrete action. What can member states and the United Nations as a whole do? The German Government will shortly present its third implementation report on resolution 1325 to Parliament. While striving for the full and timely implementation of the entire resolution, and looking ahead, priority will be given to 1) Increased participation of women in national, regional and international institutions and mechanisms, particularly in higher positions 2) Financial and technical support to UN gender awareness-raising campaigns 3) A gender perspective during and after the negotiation of peace agreements 4) The special needs of women combatants in demobilisation and reintegration processes
  2. To achieve progress in these areas, Germany will set up a list of national and international priority initiatives. We will also continue to support international organizations and NGOs in promoting women’s empowerment.
