Gender equality and development

Conflict, fragility, violence and humanitarian assistance


Several international agreements acknowledge the importance of protecting women in conflict and fragile situations, and the role that they can and should play in conflict resolution to ensure sustained peace. These include UN Security Council Resolutions 1325 (2000), 1820 (2008), 1888 and 1889 (2009). The Accra Agenda for Action also commits donors and partners " help ensure the protection and participation of women" in post conflict countries and situations of fragility (para. 21b). The practice notes in this section address these issues and also the broader question of violence against women.
