Specific entry points for the Council include:
Strongly support women’s engagement in all levels of decision-making within key national processes, regional and subregional organizations;
In advance of the upcoming African Union Peace and Security Council meeting, the Security Council should discuss how to strengthen its collaboration with regional efforts to meet women, peace and security obligations.
