  • Outcome 1: An enabling environment for the implementation of WPS commitment: This can be achieved through evidence-based advocacy and technical support to ensure the adoption of quality, locally relevant accountability frameworks that meet emerging threats and challenges (including violent extremism), and that address attitudinal and cultural biases.
  • Outcome 2: Conflict prevention: Women’s meaningfully participation in conflict prevention can only materialize if three conditions are in place. First, favourable attitudes of parties to the conflict & communities towards women’s participation in conflict prevention must be promoted. Second, local women’s organizations must have the capacity to identify and respond to threats by establishing networks, early-warning systems and mechanisms that offer opportunities for dialogue and peacefully engagement. Finally, women’s conflict prevention mechanisms must be connected to national and international reporting and response systems.
  • Outcome 3: Humanitarian/crisis response planning, frameworks and programming which is informed by gender analysis and needs assessments: This requires both the technical tools as well as direct support to local women’s organizations to engage effectively in humanitarian planning and programming.
