National Action Plans
Implementing the Women, Peace and Security framework at the national level.
The National Action Plans (NAPs) are guiding national policy documents to implement the Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 at National level of each Member State. Indeed, the implementation of the UNSCR 1325 is not only a responsibility of the UN, but also of national governments. For this reason, in 2004 the Security Council called for Member States to elaborate on and adopt National Action Plans or similar specific national strategies, in order to ensure the promotion of the UNSCR 1325. The National Action Plans, elaborated for each country by a set of institutional and civil society stakeholders, aim to identify priorities and coordinate actions to ensure gender mainstreaming in all internal and external policies of the State.
Not all Member States have elaborated National Action Plans, but during the last decade the number of adopted NAPs continued to grow, showing further commitment by National governments.
