Operationalizing the Stockholm Declaration: Proposals for translating commitments on gender into IDPS mandate and work plan

The Global Meeting of the International Dialogue held in Stockholm on 5th April agreed on several areas for the IDPS to prioritize over the next few years. It recognized that “a particular focus is needed to ensure gender-sensitivity and women’s effective participation in peace processes and peacebuilding” and committed to “strengthening gender approaches and women’s active participation in peacebuilding by linking the implementation of the New Deal to the implementation of UNSCR 1325 and related resolutions.” The meeting also agreed to “make concerted political and financial efforts to operationalize and implement the 2030 Agenda“, which includes SDG 5 on gender equality and a commitment to gender-sensitive implementation of all Sustainable Development Goals.
