For July, in which New Zealand has the presidency of the UN Security Council, the MAP provides recommendations on the situations in Burundi, Cyprus, Iraq, Sudan (Abyei), and Syria as well as the thematic discussion on security challenges in Small Islands and Developing States (SIDS). In its regular work across all agenda items, the Security Council should ensure that all country reports and mandate renewals evaluate the level of protection and promotion of women’s human rights, as per SCRs 1325, 1820 (OP 9), 1888 (OP 11), 1889 (OP 5), 1960 (OPs 6, 13), 2106 (OPs 5, 6), and 2122 (OP 2(d)). Member States should inquire about any lack of such reporting.
