As Afghanistan prepares for presidential elections and the withdrawal of international forces, insecurity continues to spread across the country, with a devastating impact on civilians. The role of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) in advancing human rights, supporting humanitarian access and promoting peace and reconciliation efforts must be strengthened – particularly as it relates to the agenda on women, peace and security in Afghanistan. It is critical that the significant gains that have been made in the last decade are not lost.

This briefing outlines the key concerns of civil society organizations in Afghanistan and puts forward suggested action for the consideration of UN Security Council members.
