Partnering for Change – Translating the Women, Peace and Security Agenda into Action

Switzerland and South Africa, as the 2022 Co-Chairs of the WPS Focal Points Network, will lead the Network’s efforts this year to advance and strengthen the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security agenda. In this endeavor, documenting and amplifying the substantial knowledge and experience of Network members is an essential priority for the co-chairs, who will work closely together with Troika members, Canada and Uruguay, and with the support of the UN Women Secretariat.

Under the theme “Partnering for Change – Translating the Women, Peace and Security Agenda into Action,” Switzerland and South Africa hosted the Focal Points for a capital-level meeting in Geneva on 18-19 May 2022. Read the joint communique here.

The co-chairship theme embodies the objective of the Network as a global platform advancing the implementation of the WPS agenda through cooperation and captures the partnership between South Africa and Switzerland.
