Adoption of the agenda

The agenda was adopted.

Women and peace and security


The President: I thank Ms. Mayanja for her statement.

I now give the floor to Ms. Noeleen Heyzer, Executive Director of the United Nations Development Fund for Women.

Ms. Heyzer : ...


The process of uniting around common priorities for peace is a vital first step, but we have learned that such international support must be provided in a way that allows women to take full ownership of the priorities established. Our role is to be a trusted partner and honest broker.

An example of that role was seen in July this year, when UNIFEM was asked by Israeli and Palestinian leaders to organize a dialogue among women so as to identify their common priorities for peace. That resulted in the formation of an International Women’s Commission to support a just and sustainable peace, which was recently endorsed by a presidential decree by the Palestinian National Authority. The Parliament of Israel has also endorsed resolution 1325 (2000) and the participation of women in the peace process.


The meeting was suspended at 1.30 p.m.
