Our Women, Peace and Security hub has thousands of resources, tools and initiatives from the local to global all around the world. PeaceWomen is committed to amplifying and sharing peacemakers’ voices through our online resource hub.

PeaceWomen/WILPF is pleased to announce that we have started a UNSCR 1325 National Action Plan (NAP) Initiative. This initiative will join PeaceWomen's website as another tool for information sharing, awareness raising, and advocacy.
National Action Plan Initiative
PeaceWomen is continuing our National Action Plan Initiative in 2013. Through this initiative, we are providing analysis of country NAP's and Regional Action Plans (RAP).
PeaceWomen has developed 13 main themes as a framework to organize our Women, Peace and Security resources for ease of reference and understanding. The themes should not be seen as fixed as they are interlinked and overlap but provide a useful analysis framework.

It has been just over a year since the adoption of Security Council Resolution 1820, which focused primarily on the issue of sexual violence in conflict, and the much-anticipated first report of the Secretary-General on its implementation has just been released.
