Midterm evaluation of the Ukrainian National Action Plan on implementation of UNSCR 1325 “Women, Peace and Security” until 2020
On 24 February 2016, the Government of Ukraine approved its NAP to implement UNSCR 1325 for the period 2016-2020. The NAP adoption is considered to be a serious, positive step towards integration the Women, Peace and Security agenda into the reform and reconstruction and peace-building processes.
The midterm evaluation of the NAP 1325 aims to review progress, achievements and challenges to strengthen the NAP framework towards more efficient implementation and accountability in the second stage of the four-year Plan. It also aims to increase transparency, effectiveness and engagement of the responsible parties for NAP 1325 implementation. The mid-term evaluation findings will be used to draft recommendations to modify and amend NAP 1325 in order to support more efficient performance and to develop proposals to enhance the structure of monitoring and evaluation processes.
National Action Plan on UNSCR 1325 (NAP 1325) can serve as important tools for governments, multilateral organizations and civil society organizations to support the translation of UNSCR 1325 into practical action and to strengthen women’s roles in conflict prevention, peacebuilding and security processes.
