WILPF- PeaceWomen, in collaboration with AWID, Cordaid, Equidad Genero, the Global Acceleration Instrument, the NGO Working Group on Women, Peace, and Security, the Women's Major Group, the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders, the Feminist Task Force, and the Women's Environment and Development Organization, will host a side event to the 2016 High Level Political Forum on July 11, 2016 from 1:15-2:30 in the Baha'I International Conference Room. 

As the 2015 Global Study on UN Security Council Resolution 1325 has shown, there is a consistent, striking disparity between policy commitments to gender equality and women’s empowerment, and the financial allocations to achieve them. The 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially on Gender Equality (Goal 5) and on Stable and Peaceful Societies (Goal 16), provide a critical opportunity to implement commitments on gender equality and peace. This side event will share the results of the 7-8 July workshop on Financing Women, Peace and Security: this includes mapping financial resources and good practices and lessons learned to promote gender equitable and stable and peaceful societies through more effective WPS financing and accountability.
