The Special Representative notes at a time when the RCA through a painful period in its history, political and social actors in the country took their choice on a woman, in the person of Catherine Samba-Panza, to lead the nation, heal the wounds opened by the crisis and create conditions for the completion of the transition process and those of a national revival.

He reiterated the support of the MISCA the efforts of Central African authorities and the determination of the Mission, with the support of the Sangaris operation to effectively implement all aspects of its mandate, relying in this on the undeniable progress recorded in less than three months in the deployment of the stabilization situation.
It should be recalled that in December 1977 the General Assembly of the UN adopted a resolution proclaiming a United Nations Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace to be observed annually by the Member States.
In adopting this resolution, the General Assembly recognized the role of women in peace efforts and development, and called for an end to discrimination and to strengthen support for the full participation of women.
Since then, the AU has adopted several instruments aimed at strengthening women’s contribution to peace and development and to ensure gender equality.
In the implementation of its mandate, the MISCA pays particular attention to gender issues and is working through its civilian component, to meet the specific protection needs of this important segment of the population.
