In considering the report on UN Office for West Africa and the Sahel (UNOWAS), the Security Council should provide thorough information regarding the implementation of the mission’s strong WPS mandate, which calls for gender to be considered throughout its work. The report should also include analysis of the regional implementation of the WPS agenda and the mission’s collaboration with ECOWAS on a sub-regional plan of action on Resolution 1325 (2000). The report should also address any political and financial support provided or planned which builds the capacity of women leaders and CSOs in urban and rural areas to fully and regularly participate in peace and security discussions.
