    Background

    Advertisement
    • UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. 
    • In Nigeria, UN Women works to support the Government’s national development agenda, which prioritizes the empowerment of women and girls and their contribution to all areas of economic, political, and social development.
    • The objective of building and sustaining peace and security across the country is critical for Nigeria, which faces several security challenges including the Boko Haram insurgency in the Northeast, the Farmers / Herders conflict in the Middle Belt, and conflicts over natural resources in the oil-rich Niger Delta region.
    • Ongoing efforts to address these conflicts often overlook women’s role and contributions. Women are often seen only as victims of conflicts that need to be protected rather than agents of change for peace. This leaves untapped, the potential and capacities of women whose contributions can be harnessed to promote transformative change and sustainable peace. 
    • Through the previous phase of the Women Peace and Security (WPS) Programme, UN Women enhanced the effective participation of women in conflict prevention and peacebuilding and improved the public perception on the role of women in peace and security at the national level and in the target states of Bauchi and Benue.
    • The Programme registered significant achievements against its set results framework, including developing State Actions Plans and Women Mediators Networks in the target States, the development of a Legislative Guide on Women, Peace, and Security and capacity enhancement of legislators in the State Houses of Assembly, among others.
    • The Programme has also created the conditions for related WPS programming on the security sector, Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) Act (VAPP) implementation, and women’s mediation capacities and utilization.
    • The next phase of the programme starting in 2022 will also include women’s leadership and political participation, particularly in relation to peace and security concerns. As a follow-on programming for Phase II, interventions will include:
      • Support to the development of Nigeria’s 3rd National Action Plan (NAP) on Women, Peace and Security, including mechanisms to enhance coordination in implementation, monitoring and reporting;
      • Enhanced legislative engagement and actions on Women, Peace, and Security;
      • An enabling secured environment for women’s leadership and participation in politics
      • Support to women mediation capacities, networks, and actions for conflict prevention and peacebuilding.
