Cameroon’s National Action Plan on Resolution 1325: civil society assesses progress

On Wednesday 20 January 2021 in Yaoundé, WILPF Cameroon and partner CSOs organised a workshop to “evaluate civil society’s contribution to the review of the first generation of Cameroon’s National Action Plan on UNSCR 1325”, whose implementation started in 2017 and ended in 2020.
The overall objective of the workshop was to gather input from civil society organisations for the second generation of Cameroon’s NAP on UNSCR 1325. In terms of specific objectives, it was to assess the level of implementation of the 1st NAP in Cameroon, as well as the challenges and opportunities in its implementation, and to discuss the contribution of CSOs in the 2nd NAP.
Nearly 30 civil society actors from the Central, North-West, South and East regions were present to share their experiences with the NAP, before making their contributions to assess the challenges and opportunities of the NAP.
At the end of the exchanges, recommendations on the way forward for the implementation of the NAP in Cameroon were provided. In particular, it was proposed that a joint steering committee (Government-CSOs) be set up to monitor the implementation of the next generation of the NAP of UNSCR 1325 in Cameroon. Indeed, although civil society actors are satisfied that Cameroon has been able to adopt a first NAP, the general opinion is that much effort remains to be made to ensure that its implementation is inclusive and has a real impact, particularly on the situation of women and on social peace.
The next round of consultations will be held on 26 January and 2 February 2021 in Douala and Maroua respectively.
