The Common Agenda for Combating VAWG in Syria was utilized as a learning tool in four 2-day workshops on the United Nation’s Security Council’s Resolution 1325 which were organized at local community levels to highlight the link between VAW and CRSV in armed conflict.

The target group was a total of 94 people in 6 areas (inside and outside Syria), gathering mostly community leaders and opinion makers as well as active women from the selected communities. EFI supported the organization and implementation of the workshops. They were be designed by the SGBV and PVE experts and delivered by local trainers where the common agenda was be presented. 

Further, fifteen of the most capable trainees were identified by the experts and trainers to move on to the next phase of the activity where the trainees were afforded a budget to plan and implement trainings on UNSCR1325. They were required to plan trainings for a physical audience of their own choosing from their own regions: Lebanon, Gaziantep, As-Suwayda, Azar, in the areas of self-administration, as well as in Berlin, Paris and Sweden. The trainings are be in-person and combined with online when needed.
