The Mwanamke, Amani na Usalama Consortium 2.0 (Kiswahili for Women, Peace and Security) consisting of two Dutch organisations and one regional organisation based in the DRC. In DRC the programme will work towards promoting the effective application of UNSCR 1325. MAnU2.0 will be implemented with 8 In-Country Partners (ICPs) in DRC in 5 territories in North and South Kivu (Rutshuru, Masisi, Lubero, Idjwi, Uvira). MAnU 2.0 identifies three interrelated key problems that prevent women’s and girls’ meaningful participation in peace processes: 1) Women are insufficiently protected from violence; 2) persistent harmful gender norms obstruct peace, and 3) political spaces restrict women’s voices. The Theory of Change (TOC) addresses 3 key groups which can foster this change: Women and girls (leaders), Men, boys, religious leaders and community leaders (informal power holders), Local, Provincial and National Authorities (formal power holders). We use Awareness & Reflection to engage stakeholders to understand and reflect upon their actions, their lives and the norms and societies in which they live. We strengthen capacities of societal groups as a means to foster lasting change for respect for women’s rights in peaceful societies. Through Lobby & Advocacy at the local, provincial and national levels, we will use evidence-based advocacy to ensure the full implementation of the NAPs 1325 and support women advocates to join alliances and raise their demands for change. Finally, we will use national evidence at the regional level to lobby for the implementation of the RAP 1325, and other regional agreements, to advance implementation of NAP 1325 in DRC. IO1: Women and girl (leaders) are skilled and empowered to participate in conflict prevention and resolution IO2: Informal powerholders are supportive and engaged of women’s participation and equal rights IO3: Formal powerholders are responsive to women’s rights abuses and accountable for the implementation of laws and policies that protect women and girls.
