Indeed, though the critical role women play in all aspects of conflict prevention, management and resolution has been formally recognized since the adoption by the United Nations Security Council of the landmark resolution 1325 (2000), and even though progress has been made in several African countries, women's participation remains limited. In a bid to enhance the participation and leadership of women of Africa in a peaceful, stable and prosperous Africa as envisioned by Agenda 2016, the Office of the AU Special Envoy on Women, Peace and Security and UN Women embarked on a project, with the support of the Federal Republic of Germany on "Women's Leadership Initiative for Stability in Africa" for the period 2017-2018. The project aims to establish a network of African women leaders, expose African women leaders to major international and regional events and to support the participation of African women leaders in national electoral processes and peace processes.
