Women in Conflict Prevention in Hebron-Palestine
The “Women in Conflict Prevention in Hebron” project, which is implemented by the Palestinian Association for Empowerment and Local Development – REFORM. This project seeks to increase women’s participation in decision-making processes and promote the roles of both women and men in building safe communities through the development of early warning and response systems, specifically in the targeted governorate of Hebron. This project aims to raise the public’s awareness of the added value of women’s role in conflict prevention and change the attitudes of local communities in favor of women’s participation in this regard. To achieve this, the project contributes to the establishment of communication channels and interactive spaces between the communities and decision-makers at all levels. This allows them to engage in constructive dialogue to find the necessary measures that prevent conflict in cases of domestic violence, as well as political and social disputes.
The Women’s Peace & Humanitarian Fund (WPHF) mobilizes critical financial support for local and grassroots civil-society organizations working on women, peace and security and humanitarian action. Since its launch in 2016, WPHF has funded over 200 civil-society organizations in 25 countries supporting women on the front lines to be a force for crisis response and lasting peace.
