Kathmandu, July 10:

A plan of action has been drafted to boost the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 in Nepal during a one-day workshop organised by the UN system in Nepal. The Resolution concerns the role and participation of women for the prevention, management, and resolution of conflicts, stated a release issued by the United Nations Information Centre in Kathmandu. “Although the draft of the interim constitution has begun without women’s participation, and none of the newly-established committees include women, it is time to work together to reverse this trend. We need to fully embrace this opportunity to commit to the ongoing process, and once and for all see Nepali women take up the roles they are entitled to,” said acting UN Resident Coordinator Junko Sazaki as she opened the workshop on Friday morning.
