In view of the 52nd session of the Commission on the Status of Women, this press release from 25 February 2008 points out the lack of dedicated regular budgetary funds for the implementation of resolution 1325 and calls for comprehensive resource allocation to ensure the full implementation of the WPS agenda.
Financing for Gender Equality 52nd Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (New York, 25 February – 7 March 2008)
Inadequate specific resource allocations have contributed to slow progress in the implementation of the resolution [Security Council resolution 1325] in practice. We must ensure that regular budgetary resources are specifically allocated for both gender mainstreaming and initiatives targeted at women and girls.”
