Women, Peace and Security

Ambassador Kairat Abdrakhmanov, the Permanent Representative of Kazakhstan to the United Nations, made a statement at the UN Security Council Open Debate on “Women, Peace and Security”
on 25 October 2016. In his address, Ambassador Abdrakhmanov noted that despite laudable strides made, there is still insufficient participation and leadership of women. It is essential to bridge the gap between intent and implementation, between word and action. Women must be engaged in mediation & conflict resolution, post conflict and recovery phases, with closer coordination by UN entities for gender mainstreaming in peacebuilding and peacekeeping.
