Somali Women kick start processes to develop A National Plan of Action for
greater inclusion in peace building

Mogadishu, 08 October—A cross section of Somali women met on Monday in


Mogadishu to kick start a process towards the development of a National Action
Plan (NAP) to strengthen their participation in peacebuilding and socio-economic
progress in the stabilization and rebuilding efforts for Somalia.

Representing women in politics, civil society and security sectors from the Federal
Government of Somalia (FGS) and the Federal Member States, the participants at
the three-day conference organized by the African Union Mission in Somalia
(AMISOM) are set to focus on the action plan for women’s political participation,
women in mediation and women in the security sector.

The conference was officially opened by the Somalia’s Minister of Youth and Sports,
Ms. Khadija Mohamed Diriye, alongside the Deputy Special Representative of the
Chairperson of the African Union Commission (DSRCC) for Somalia, Simon Mulongo
was also aimed at deepening the implementation of the United Nations Security
Council Resolution 1325.

The United Nations Security Council in 2000 adopted Resolution 1325 which affirms
that peace and security efforts are more sustainable when women are equal
partners in the prevention of violent conflict, the delivery of relief and recovery
efforts and in the forging of lasting peace.

“As we continue to support and work with the government and the people of
Somalia on reconstituting the state, rehabilitating and rebuilding Somalia, we want
to focus on the issue of women in the entire equation of how to rebuild Somalia.
“Today’s conference marks the beginning of efforts to make Somalia a full
participant in the recognition of women to participate fully in issues of peace and
security,” Mr Mulongo said.

Minister Khadija , spoke widely about the challenges of women and youth in Somalia
and the need to implement the Security Council Resolution 1325.

“We have been working on this resolution for a while. It has not been fully
implemented however we are keen to ensure full implementation now,” the
minister explained.

The Minister of Women and Human Rights in HirShabelle State, Ms. Aisha Khalif,
spoke about the peculiar challenges that Somali women face in her state.

“We record significant numbers of rape cases. We also lack health facilities and
other social amenities. These challenges leaves our girls and women vulnerable,”
Ms. Aisha stated.

Ms. Faiza Sharif Nuur Mohamed, the Minister of Women, Family Affairs and Human
Rights in South West State, called for full inclusion for Somali women.
