For June, in which Bolivia has the presidency of the UN Security Council, the MAP provides recommendations on the situations in Colombia, Cote d’Ivoire, Darfur, Mali, Somalia, and Syria.
- The UN Mission in Colombia should be encouraged to continue its positive practice of regular engagement with CSOs; there should be regular consultations at all levels, particularly with Afro-descendant, Indigenous and rural women’s groups. The inclusion of information on CSO consultations in Secretary-General reports (S/2017/252; S/2016/1095) is good practice and should be continued.
- The mandate of the second UN mission should include provisions for gender mainstreaming across the mandate of the mission, and regular consultation with CSOs, including women’s groups, as well as ensure gender parity amongst staff within the mission.
- Council members should request information about the efforts by the Government to respect free, prior and informed consultation and consent of Afro-descendant and Indigenous communities, in accordance with ILO Convention No. 169, before passing legislation pertinent to the implementation of the peace agreement that could impact Afro-descendant and Indigenous Peoples rights. Relatedly, Council members should inquire about the measures undertaken by the Government to support the High-level Special Body with Afro-descendant and Indigenous Peoples, established in accordance with the Ethnic chapter, to monitor the implementation of the peace agreement in Afro-descendant and Indigenous territories.
- Council members should request information about Government efforts to adopt measures and budget allocation to support rural women’s peace initiatives and their participation in economic and policy decisions that promote women empowerment in peace consolidation processes (SCR 1889 (2009)).
- Take fully into account gender considerations as a crosscutting issue throughout its mandate.
- Support women’s participation in all peace and security processes, including political and electoral processes and the security sector, through capacity-building and efforts which challenge gender norms that restrict gender sensitive behaviors within these institutions.
- Monitor and report on human rights violations, including SGBV and targeting of human rights defenders.
- Reinforce the importance of strengthening accountability in the security sector, and underline UNSOM’s role, in collaboration with African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) and the Government, in fully implementing the Secretary-General’s Human Rights and Due Diligence Policy (HRDDP).
- Regularly consult with CSOs, including women’s groups.
