WOMEN, NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security

Dear colleagues,

The NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security has released the August 2012 version of our Monthly Action Points (MAP) on Women, Peace and Security for the UN Security Council.

For August, in which the France has the Security Council presidency, the MAP provides recommendations on the situations in Bosnia & Herzegovina, Central African Region, Haiti, Lebanon, Middle East, and Sudan / South Sudan. The MAP also provides recommendations for the Security Council’s ongoing implementation of its Women, Peace and Security obligations.

About the MAP project:
The NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security produces Monthly Action Points, a series of recommendations that show how each United Nations Security Council President can provide leadership on, and how the Security Council as a whole can systematically meet its obligations to women in conflict. These briefs are designed for Security Council Members, civil society actors, Member States, and UN entities. We look forward to your feedback and input. Please distribute widely.

All previous MAPs are available on our website: www.womenpeacesecurity.org.

Information and previous MAP points on specific country situations as well as NGOWG Member resources are available on our Website.

The MAP for August is available in English, with additional languages forthcoming.

All the best,
