Through the Rapid Response Window (RRW) Direct Support and Short-Term Grants, WPHF provides financing for strategic and urgent services and initiatives that dismantle barriers to the access and participation of women peacebuilders and women’s civil society organizations in formal peace processes and the implementation of peace agreements.
The WPHF Rapid Response Window is proud to support the following partners and projects:
- Community Youth for Development Aid (CYDA) on a project to strengthen the monitoring mechanisms for the implementation of gender provisions in the 2018 Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (R-ARCSS’s) by developing a technical document, facilitate consultative workshops and develop a participatory plan of action to ensure women’s perspectives influence the implementation of the R-ARCSS’s gender provisions.
- Alliance pour la Recherche et le Développement Intégré (ARDI) on a project to carry out research on women’s participation in the implementation of the Agreement for Peace and Reconciliation resulting from the Algiers process signed in 2015. ARDI’s initiative activities include a literature review, data collection and the publication of a report. The research will include surveys directed by a team of experts, to collect the opinions of women, men and young people, national and local authorities, women opinion leaders, customary and religious authorities, international bodies, as well as members of monitoring groups for peace and security. The final report will serve as an advocacy tool with the aim to improve the participation of women in the process of implementing the peace agreement.
- Women’s NGO Secretariat of Liberia (WONGOSOL) on a project to sustain the implementation of a consortium with seven women’s organizations. This consortium will represent the establishment of a platform to develop high-level engagement on the implementation of the recommendations of the 2009 Truth and Reconciliation Commission report (TRC) following the 2003 Accra Comprehensive Peace Agreement. Women will undertake capacity building activities to increase awareness on the TRC and raise accountability of decision makers.
- LIFT on a project to strengthen women’s engagement and participation in monitoring the implementation of the 2009 TRC report recommendations by conducting capacity building for women-led CSOs and help women identify barriers to their participation, strengthen joint planning and collaborative advocacy efforts to win the support of key stakeholders.
