The MINUSMA project aims to improve the accommodation for women police officers in four camps for Formed Police Units (FPUs) from Nigeria, Senegal, and Togo. The mission’s goal is to increase the number of women in FPUs in order to improve the effectiveness of the mandate implementation.
The project focuses on two main areas of improvement:
- Increasing the capacity of the camps to accommodate more women in FPUs, aiming for a minimum of 32 women per FPU (25% of each FPU) by 2025.
- Enhancing the quality of accommodation for women already deployed, specifically focusing on improving hygiene facilities, to ensure parity of living conditions between men and women.
This project supports the follow EIF outcomes:
- Primary: EIF Outcome 4 – improved working conditions for uniformed women peacekeepers in UN missions, and its associated indicators, and
- Secondary: EIF Outcome 2 – increased meaningful deployment of uniformed women peacekeepers to United Nations missions.
By improving the accommodation and increasing the number of women police officers in FPUs, this project will enable the creation of a more inclusive and effective working environment for women peacekeepers in UN missions. As such, this project aims to improve the capacity and morale of the women police officers which will enabling the FPU to conduct their tasks more effectively in accordance with the mission mandate.
