MONROVIA, November 22 (LINA) – Liberian women have called on the United Nations to provide support to enhance their participation in peace-building processes, particularly in decision-making.

The women group, through Madam Marpue Spere, also urged the UN to ensure that all peace-building initiatives are fully aligned with women’s needs and concerns.
Spere made the call Friday at the end of a two-day workshop on Women, Peace and Security, UN SCR 1325 held at the Monrovia City Hall.

She said women also want the UN advocate for 50 percent representation of women in UN-sponsored high-level peace negotiations and other negotiations and decision-making processes to ensure that women’s views and voices are considered.

« The UN should continue to support the government with public awareness programs, particularly in rural areas on wealth and natural resources management, especially in land management cases to prevent potential conflicts and promote peace, » she pointed out.

She said that the women are also appealing that the UN provides increased support for women’s civil society capacity-building, including the areas of advocacy, documentation, research and gathering of best practices on conflict resolution.
