Global Network of Women Peacebuilders

Global Network of Women Peacebuilders Equality for Women. Peace for All. The Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP) is a coalition of women’s groups and other civil society organizations from Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Latin America, Eastern and Western Europe and the Middle East and Arab World, mostly from conflict-affected countries.

GNWP Board, management and staff are experts in advocating for women’s leadership to be at the core of all efforts in peacebuilding, conflict prevention and sustaining peace. It has demonstrated impact in bringing local voices to influence global policies on women’s rights, peace and security; and in translating global policies into practical actions that improve the lives of local populations.

Mission: GNWP bridges the gap between global policies on Women and Peace and Security (WPS) and practical and necessary actions on the ground; and to achieve greater recognition and meaningful participation of women as key influencers and decision-makers.

For the month of September, we’re hitting pause on Facebook.

During the next thirty days the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP) is boycotting Facebook. We will stop all activity to raise awareness of the platform’s role in threatening peace and democracy.

We say ENOUGH! Facebook must be held to account and reformed to curb disinformation, human rights violations and the warmongering it has become a space for. Disinformation and fake news stories on Facebook have reached unprecedented numbers, at unprecedented speed.

GNWP is proud to support virtual #Localizing1325 workshops with local women from Cauca + Tolima 🇨🇴 organized by Red Nacional de Mujeres Colombia!

Key recommendations from the 1st round:

☑️ Women-led monitoring of ☮️ agreement implementation at the local level. We need more progress on gender provisions!

☑️ Adopt local action plans on WPS to guarantee diverse needs of women, incl. Indigenous, ex-combatant, Afro-Colombian women & #LGBTQ are included in local planning.

☑️ Support women's civil society during #COVID-19 recovery, as there is no #SustainingPeace without them!
