For June, in which France has the presidency of the UN Security Council, the MAP provides recommendations on the situations in Afghanistan, Libya, Mali, and Sudan (Darfur). The MAP also provides recommendations on protection of civilians and women, peace and security.
- Ensure women’s security and ability to move freely throughout the country by countering the Taliban and other armed groups, in full respect for human rights and international humanitarian law;
- Ensure women’s involvement in all efforts to establish peace in Afghanistan, including in peace jirgas and any negotiations with all armed insurgent groups, to ensure reconciliation does not undermine women’s progress;
- Ensure adequate preparation for October’s parliamentary elections, including ensuring temporary female security personnel are contracted to staff polling stations and female candidates are afforded same levels of protection as their male counterparts; and
- Ensure full implementation of the National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security (NAP) as a critical step in elevating women as full and equal partners in creating a stable future for the country.
- Promote the full and effective participation of women in all peace, security and political processes including through the establishment of a consultative mechanism with civil society groups in all activities relating to the democratic transition, conflict resolution and peacebuilding, in line with SCR 1325 (2000) and all subsequent women, peace and security (WPS) resolutions;
- Recognize women’s unique protection needs, including with regards to cases of trafficking, torture, and detainment, as well as considerations relevant to women’s role in disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) and security sector reform (SSR) processes;
- Call for an end to impunity for violence against women, investigate and monitor human rights abuses, including sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), and deploy women’s protection advisers, gender advisers and other gender expertise in the mission;
- Support women’s leadership and participation in all combating, reducing and preventing violent extremism; and
- Request the Secretary-General to report to the Security Council on the gender dynamics of the situation in Libya, including in the political, security and humanitarian sectors, and provide sex and age disaggregated data whenever possible.
