Funders Network for Afghan Women - May 2009 BRIEF

"Getting It Right: Security, Peace and Development for Afghan Women"

Excerpt: With the fall of the Taliban, Afghan women came back from the brink. But the gains made since 2001 are fragile. Any prospects of better lives for Afghan women and girls are inherently linked to the success of the development, reconstruction and the poverty alleviation agenda of the international community and the Afghan Government. The common ingredients for success in any efforts are those that will invest in people and that will create openings for sustainable change in the treatment of women. Below are a set of key issues and recommendations.

NEW RELEASE: FNAW's policy brief with recommendations on women, peace and development in Afghanistan: "Getting It Right: Security, Peace and Development for Afghan Women".
