On 28 October, Nigeria will host an Open Debate on Women Peace and Security, marking the 11th anniversary of the adoption of
resolution 1325 (2000). This presents an opportunity for the Council and every UN Member State to take further action to ensure full
implementation of SCR 1325 and all relevant Women, Peace and Security commitments. In particular, the Council should ensure that
its resolutions, including mission mandates and renewals, consistently integrate and advance the Women Peace and Security agenda,
with the full support of the UN system and all relevant UN Member States. The recommendations in the Secretary-General's
forthcoming report on Women Peace and Security should be taken forward; and Member States held to account for previous commitments they have made. The Council, UN system and Member States are strongly urged to agree to timetabled measures, in order to ensure in peace processes, the meaningful engagement of women and civil society and the inclusion of their concerns.
