The Government of Japan is supporting UN Women Kenya’s programme on women, peace and security, specifically on engaging women in preventing and countering extremist violence in Kenya. The aim of this programme is to highlight women’s roles in prevention efforts and recognizing their potentials as partners in prevention frameworks. Recognizing this potential, the Security Council passed UNSCR 2242 (2015) during the High Level Global Review on the implementation of UNSCR 1325. The newest resolution recognizes the changing peace and security context and for women, peace and security to be mainstreamed across all areas, particularly on courting violent extremism
UN Women aims at supporting the Government of Kenya, civil society in understanding and applying instruments on women, peace and security such as the United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1325 (2000) towards the full realization of women’s human rights in Kenya.
