    Hello!!

    I'd like to know what does"seamless continuum" mean......

    The UN needs to adopt a more holistic one-system approach to systematically address the needs and capacities of women throughout all phases of the transition from conflict to peace as a SEAMLESS CONTINUUM.

    Would you help me please?? thank you!!

    Seam es la costura de una prenda. El sufijo less indica "sin". La palabra continuum, significa un estado continuo de algo sin interrupción.
    Por lo tanto, se puede traducir como "una transición de conflicto/guerra a la paz sin marcas/sin rebordes".

    Saludos.

    Continuum = un continuo
    ...a lo largo de todas las fases de una transición de conflicto a paz que se desarrolle como un continuo integral.
