Since the outbreak of civil war in South Sudan in 2013, sexual and gender-based violence has been widespread and has been widely used as a weapon of war.

In addition, harmful gender norms and traditions limit the meaningful participation of women which further compromises the effectiveness of peacebuilding processes.
