Through its yearly N-Peace Awards, the initiative aims to recognise the powerful stories of peace-builders and activists in the region who embody the WPS agenda. Former N-Peace awardees have gone on to report increased access to the decision-making arena and other partnerships.
The small grants component is rolled out starting from 2018 to support civil society action on the ground in implementing
- participation – ensuring women’s equal participation in the decision making process;
- protection – protecting and promoting the rights of women in conflict affected situations; and,
- prevention – preventing conflict and all forms of violence against women in conflict and post conflict situations.
