Technical Briefing on the Elsie Initiative Fund for Uniformed Women in Peace Operations
9 Jul 2019 -  In March 2019, UN Women, with the Government of Canada launched the Elsie Initiative Fund for Uniformed Women in Peace Operations. The Fund seeks to accelerate progress towards achieving UN targets to increase the proportion of women serving in uniformed military and police roles.
This is the first funding cycle of the Elsie Initiative Fund. The primary recipients of the Fund are troop- and police-contributing countries (T/PCCs). UN organizations that wish to increase the meaningful participation of uniformed women in peace operations may also access the Fund.
