The final outcome document will establish a detailed roadmap for UNSCR 1325 regional action planning and twinning, bridging and innovating in the Greater Horn of Africa, in the lead up to the United Nations Security Council Ministerial Meeting on Women, Peace and Security (New York, 29 October 2010).

This process is part of the three-year strategy Women’s Leadership for Peace and Security in the Greater Horn of Africa, launched in October 2009, under the auspices of the African Union and the United Nations, and the pooled support of the Club de Madrid, Isis-WICCE and the Institute for Security Studies. 

The 10th anniversary of UNSCR 1325 on women, peace and security in October 2010 represents a historic occasion for Member States, the United Nations, and civil society to work together to ensure that concrete, measurable, and positive action is taken to empower and protect women in conflict situations. Under the Presidency of Uganda in October 2010, the Security Council can provide renewed momentum to this effort –laying out clear systems for monitoring and accountability on its women, peace and security obligations.
