Based on the premise that gender is a foundational pillar on which security can be built, RESDAL acts as a bridge to link regions from across the world in the pursuit of furthering this goal.

Supporting the work of other actors is a fundamental aim of RESDAL’s work
In 2011, the Network’s general secretariat actively participated in the process that led to the issuance of the Military Guidelines on the implementation of Resolution 1325 in the field, a process which was undertaken by UN DPKO/DFS and OMA in New York. This process was followed by the elaboration of training modules for peacekeepers based on those guidelines, a process in which RESDAL also directly participated.
