Although most countries in Southern Africa are not in a state of war in the traditional sense, there still exists war and insecurities around gender equity and equality in government and governance, economic justice, education, HIV and AIDS.

This is the main conclusion of the Institute for Security Studies workshop to launch the Gender, Peace and Security Cluster that developed an action plan for the sector in mid November.

Participants from the SADC region celebrated the achievement of creating peace and security for women in the region, took account of their level of participation and highlighted the continued challenges faced.

Participants shared first-hand knowledge on conflicts in southern Africa and their experiences and lessons learnt on promoting women’s participation in peace and security. They committed to track the implementation of Article 28 of the SADC Gender and Development Protocol.
