UN Women South Sudan has continued to provide support to the country by strengthening the institutional capacity of government institutions and providing technical and financial support to the Ministry of Gender Child and Social Welfare.
UN Security Council Resolution 1325, unanimously adopted in October 2000, stressed the importance of equal participation and full involvement of women in all efforts for maintaining and promoting peace and security. In the following years, seven additional resolutions on women, peace and security (WPS) have been adopted, laying a framework for the implementation of the WPS agenda that reinforces the existing global commitments, treaties and conventions on women’s rights which are imbedded in the two global women’s rights instruments, viz. the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (1979) and the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (1995).
To deliver these commitments at the national level, the UN has encouraged member states to adopt National Action Plans (NAPs) on WPS as one of a range of mechanisms that implement the resolutions and monitor the progress of the WPS agenda. Some regional organisations have also developed Regional Action Plans (RAPs) on women, peace and security to address some of the common security issues faced by women in the region.
On 10 May 2016, the Government of South Sudan launched a National Action Plan which will implement the UN Security Council Resolution 1325. The Action plan was jointly launched by the Government and United Nations.
The aim of the UN Resolution 1325 "Women, Peace and Security" is to protect women and girls in situations of armed conflict, safeguard their human rights, prevent violence and ensure women's equal participation in peace negotiations and reconstruction efforts
It is for this purpose that UN Women South Sudan in collaboration with the Ministry of Gender, Child and Social Welfare and are seeking SSA International consultant to undertake the assignment.
