Casablanca (ADV) – Somali women have resolved to forge a united path on enhanced role in peace and reconciliation efforts in the Horn of Africa nation.

This, they said, is in line with the national priorities set out in the country’s National Development Plan for 2017-2021, and in the national reconciliation processes launched by the Somali government.

The Somali National Women’s Organization (SNWO) was the main organizer of the two-day nationwide “peace forums” on enhanced women’s roles in peace efforts, held simultaneously in the five administrative capitals of the Federal Member States of South West, Jubbaland, Puntland, HirShabelle and Galmudug states.
