Women and natural resources: unlocking the peace building potential
United Nations Environment Programme, United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), United Nations Peacebuilding Support Office (PBSO), United Nations Development Programme

Thirteen years after the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1325, investment in women as agents of change in peacebuilding remains inadequate. One of the unexplored entry points for strengthening womens contributions to peacebuilding relates to the way in which they use, manage, make decisions on and benefit from natural resources. Indeed, womens relationship to natural resources, coupled with shifting gender norms in conflict affected settings, provides opportunities for enhancing their political participation and enabling them to engage more productively in economic revitalization. With this report, UNEP, UN Women, UNDP and PBSO invite the international community, national governments and civil society to ensure that peacebuilding efforts fully include women, especially when it comes to managing natural resources.
