In brief - Women, Peace and Security in Moldova

Produced by the Peace, Security and Humanitarian Action Section of UN Women Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia and Moldova Country Office.
UN Women supports women’s full and equal representation and participation in all levels of peace processes and security efforts. UN Women’s work on women, peace, and security is guided by 10 UN Security Council resolutions 1325, 1820, 1888, 1889, 1960, 2106, 2122, 2242, 2467, and 2493—and is bolstered by a number of related normative frameworks, which make up the broader women, peace, and security (WPS) agenda. UN Women in Moldova provides continuous support to relevant governmental institutions on advancing Women, Peace and Security agenda and on achieving specific results envisaged in the National Action Plan to implement UNSCR 1325. In 2019, UN Women, in partnership with civil society organisations, supported the development of two Regulations to prevent and combat sexual harassment in the Law Enforcement and Defence sectors. The Regulations were approved by the Ministry of Defence on 7 July 2020, and by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Moldova on 4 September 2020, entering into effect immediately. The brief explains the overall achievements on Women, Peace and Security in Moldova and presents UN Women's work and impact as well as best practices and results on Women, Peace and Security.
