U.S. leadership with the Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA) co-hosted a Women, Peace and Security (WPS) workshop with the Djiboutian Ministry of Women and Family at the Palace Kempinski, Djibouti, May 8, 2022.
The participating parties, including members of the Djiboutian Ministry of Women and Family, CJTF-HOA, and U.S. Embassy Djibouti, used the venue to initiate an update to Djibouti’s WPS National Action Plan (NAP). The NAP serves as a binding document for integration of WPS principles, including how they will be prioritized and governed within Djibouti.
Two members of the Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa attended the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) 100-level course April 12-14, 2022.
Sponsored by United States Africa Command, the course generated unit-level gender focal points who can ultimately assist with command-level gender and security decisions.
