International Training Programme UNSCR1325 Women, Peace and Security

The aim of the programmes is to strengthen the capacity of civil society organisations and state institutions who implement UNSCR1325 and/or contribute to women's empowerment and participation in peace building.

Between 2010 and 2016 several international training programmes on UNSCR1325 Women, Peace and Security have been planned and implemented on behalf of Sida.

The assignment includes overall management and planning of the different programme phases, as well as conducting context analysis of relevant women's rights and security and HR sectors in the participating countries.

As a part of the training the participants develop a project relevant for UNSCR1325 and throughout the programme NIRAS indevelop gives coaching and advice on how to further develop and eventually implement their projects.
