11 September , 2019 @ 4:00 pm5:30 pm
This event brings women civil society leaders from Yemen together with representatives of the international community to identify concrete opportunities to improve international support for the meaningful participation of Yemeni women in humanitarian response, peacebuilding and security.
More specifically, with this event, we aim to: 1) Provide practical recommendations based on Yemeni women peacemakers’ experiences regarding full and effective participation of women in the peace process in Yemen 2) Provide a better understanding of local-level peacebuilding efforts in track III – often linked with humanitarian response – and how this can be connected to track II and track I diplomacy.
