This document contains excerpts from DDA's internal action plan to implement a mainstreaming strategy in support of gender equality. The original document was drafted for internal use by DDA. Because of the interest in our process we welcome the opportunity to share our document. Some chapters (notably Chapter 2 outlining the goals of the Action Plan) reflect the strategy adopted by DDA. Other chapters (notably the annexes) are provided as background and food for thought in the ongoing challenge to identify ways and opportunities to simultaneously work for disarmament and gender equality.
