The Ceasefire and Transitional Security Arrangements Monitoring Mechanism (CTSAMM) and the UN Entity for Empowerment of Women and Gender Equality (UN Women) have on Friday, 17 August 2018, signed an MoU to facilitate their cooperation in areas of mutual interest.
CTSAMM Chairman, Major General Ibrahim Abdeljelill and UN Women Representative, Funmi Balogun signed the MoU on behalf of their respective organizations.
“The Parties agree to cooperate on joint programmes and actions supporting displaced and vulnerable women’s recovery and resilience within humanitarian action,” the MoU read.
In line with the MoU, CTSAMM will take steps to ensure its reporting is consistent with the gender-based objectives of the Agreement on Cessation of Hostilities, Protection of Civilians and Humanitarian Access (ACOH). To that effect, CTSAMM will seek support from Civil Society Organizations and international organizations such as UN Women.
The two sides will join efforts to implement community workshops, initiatives and gender protection strategies and improving dissemination of the peace agreement, among others.
The MoU indicated that CTSAMM and UN Women will establish a technical team to jointly identify and carry out initiatives for implementation.
