United Nations Security Council Resolution 1820 (S/RES/1820), unanimously adopted on 19 June 2008, addresses sexual and other forms of gender-based violence (GBV) against women and girls in conflict and post-conflict situations. In the coming weeks, the UN secretariat – led by UN DPKO – will finalise a report outlining recommendations on 1820 implementation, which will then be discussed and adopted by the UN Security Council.

This paper outlines key recommendations from CARE International.
CARE welcomes the international debate on 1820, but we remain concerned that key aspects of GBV prevention and response are neglected by current deliberations.
