From 2010 to 2013, HD worked with women involved in political representation and especially in conflict and post-conflict sectors around the Asia Pacific region to enhance their networks, expertise and access, to increase their numbers and influence, and to provide concrete and practical advice to policymakers and practitioners in conflict resolution and peacemaking.

The inaugural event, a three-day roundtable meeting in Nepal in 2010, was co-organised with the India-based Women in Security, Conflict Management and Peace (WISCOMP) and the Alliance for Social Dialogue in Nepal (asdfASD). It brought together 40 senior women to identify good practice in increasing women's participation and contributions to peacemaking in Asia and the Pacific, while also acknowledging the tenth anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325.

A short video clip explores some of the challenges women face in this area, as well as their personal achievements and experiences. Click here: vimeo.com/16426911
