Implementing Locally, Inspiring Globally: Localizing UNSCR 1325 in Colombia, Nepal, the Philippines, Sierra Leone and Uganda


The Global Network of Women Peacebuilders, a program of the International Civil Society Action Network is proud to present its publication "Implementing Locally, Inspiring Globally: Localizing UNSCR 1325 in Colombia, Nepal, the Philippines, Sierra Leone and Uganda"! Highlighting how GNWP's Localization program directly engages local authorities, traditional leaders and grassroots women's groups in implementing the resolutions in local communities, this publication provides concrete examples of how women and peace and security commitments are mainstreamed in local policy development and planning processes. The guiding principles in this people-based, bottom-up approach to policy-making and implementation are as straightforward as they are effective. When local populations understand government functions and take part in developing policies, they actively contribute and help shape the relevant outcomes that affect their daily lives.

Pioneered in 2010, GNWP's Localization program has been cited as a good practice of WPS resolutions and National Action Plan (NAP) implementation at national and subnational levels in the 2012 and 2013 UN Secretary General's report on Women, Peace and Security. The Localization program is currently being implemented in Burundi, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Nepal, the Philippines, Sierra Leone and Uganda.
