On 8 & 9 October 2010, The African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (ACCORD - accord.org.za) hosted an international, high-level seminar on UN Resolution 1325, together with the African Union Peace and Security Commision. The seminar "1325 in 2020: Looking Forward... Looking Back" brought together 80 of the senior women leaders, academics and activists from the continent, to review progress on the implementation of 1325 and plan the way ahead for the coming decade to 2020. It resulted in the 'Durban Statement', which is currently informing policy and approaches to 1325 internationally.

The African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (ACCORD - accord.org.za) is a South African-based civil society organisation working throughout Africa to bring creative African solutions to the challenges posed by conflict on the continent.

ACCORD’s primary aim is to influence political developments by bringing conflict resolution, dialogue and institutional development to the forefront as an alternative to armed violence and protracted conflict. ACCORD specialises in conflict management, conflict analysis and conflict prevention. We intervene in conflicts through mediation, negotiation, training, research and conflict analysis.

ACCORD works throughout Africa: from SADC in the south, through the Great Lakes region to the Horn of Africa and in West Africa. Since 1992, ACCORD has trained over 20,000 people in conflict management and conflict resolution skills, focussing on all sectors: government and the public service, business, military and police, and civil society. ACCORD is part of the growing momentum for an African Renaissance.

The United Nations has recognised ACCORD’s approach of intervention, research, training and early warning as a viable model for conflict prevention and conflict transformation on the continent.
