Current and Past Recommendations to the UN Security Council (Monthly Action Points)
Darfur – Sudan, Abyei & Darfur (February 2015)
The Security Council is expected to consider a report of the African Union/UN Hybrid operation in Darfur (UNAMID) as well as the provision of an analysis on the implementation of the review of UNAMID and other recommendations. Given the ongoing concerns regarding the grave and deteriorating human rights situation in Darfur, the Council should prioritize the call on all parties to the conflict to protect civilians, in particular women and girls, from violations, including sexual and gender-based violence. In its discussion, the Council should followup on its request in SCR 1881 (OP 14) that the Secretary-General report on the creation and implementation of a strategy to protect women and girls from sexual and gender-based violence and include women and girls in its design. In accordance with SCR 2173 (2014), the Council should also discuss the participation of women in the peace process, including the Darfur Internal Dialogue and Consultation (OP 12), and the recruitment and deployment of women’s protection advisers (OP 24).
