WILPF Cameroon has played a crucial role in mobilising on Women, Peace and Security across the country and developing Cameroon’s National Action Plan, and now hopes that the implementation will substantially increase women’s participation in peace work across the country.
Established officially on 31 January 2014, WILPF Cameroon made the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325) its priority, with the mission to advocate for a national action plan (NAP). WILPF Cameroon trained its members and other civil society leaders to ensure outreach and more effective advocacy; engaged with relevant stakeholders and demonstrated the urgent need of this resolution by participating at the international forums. And as the implementation phase now starts, WILPF Cameroon has recently benefited from the exchange of experiences and best practices during the recent WILPF African Regional Meeting for carrying out successful implementation strategies.
