Session 3 | Building Bridges: CSOs and Local Governance

What roles do CSOs and local government actors play in advancing WPS goals? Are there barriers and opportunities that are distinct to CSOs and local governments? What are examples of innovation or implementation successes broadly relating to WPS at the local level? How can CSOs’ experiences be incorporated into future goals/NAPs/strategies?
