In April 2013, Australian civil society came together with government to hold the inaugural Annual Civil-Society Dialogue on Women, Peace and Security. The Dialogue brought together key agencies engaged in the implementation of the NAP to outline their actions and reflect, one year on from the Australian government’s adoption of this plan. The aim of the Dialogue was to monitor progress against each of the NAP’s strategies and to ensure implementation of the NAP remains both accountable to civil society and informed by its input and deliberations.
A workshop following the day of presentations, with invited civil society participants, allowed for more detailed discussion of the NAP’s progress. This Civil Society Report Card on Australia’s NAP is the result of that process.
