SIHA's member organizations are a network of Civil Society groups working in the Horn of Africa, and armed conflict largely shapes the environment in which botgh SIHA and its members operate. We need to identify and map our position; to start researching and looking for measures and mechanisms to protect and support women in conflict and post-conflict situations.
This consultation aimed at bringing together women from the Horn of Africa, particularly Somalia, Somaliland, Darfur and South Sudan. In addition, civil society groups from Kenya and South Africa were also invited to discuss and learn from each others experiences, and to collectively move a step forward and establish links for solidarity and advocacy.
This report reflects the discussions and the cases presented throughout the three days of meeting and the recommendations discussed.
