In 2018, the African Union (AU) adopted the Continental Results Framework for Monitoring and Reporting on the Implementation of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in Africa. It provides African countries with a set of indicators to track and monitor progress and challenges. State parties can use these for national self-assessment and dialogues on the state of Women in Peace and Security (WPS). This framework will go a long way in encouraging member states to adopt and implement UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325), which affirms that peace and security efforts are more sustainable when women are equal partners in the prevention of violent conflict, the delivery of relief and recovery efforts and in the forging of lasting peace. The framework also standardises reporting mechanisms, complemented by the revised AU Gender Policy and Gender Strategy 2018-2027.
