The Women's International League for Peace and Freedom has published a comprehensive survey with detailed information on action plans for the implementation of SCR 1325 in individual countries.

National Implementation of Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000) and the related resolution (SCR 1820; SCR 1888; SCR 1889) is an important tool for furthering the women, peace and security agenda. National Implementation is also a sub-theme of General Women, Peace and Security, and part of PeaceWomen’s analytical framework to classify women, peace and security resources. You can find further information and resources on the PeaceWomen.org site under Themes: General Women, Peace and Security: National Implementation.

Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000) urges Member States to take action at the national level in key areas. Following up on the implementation of the resolution, in Presidential Statements S/PRST/2004/40 and S/PRST/2005/52, the Security Council called on Member States to continue to implement resolution 1325 (2000), including through the development of national action plans (NAPs) or other national level strategies. The creation of an action plan provides an opportunity to initiate strategic actions, identify priorities and resources, and determine responsibilities and timeframes at a national level.

Presently, 37 countries have approved national action plans and numerous others are currently in the drafting phase. The whole process of developing a plan is also one of awareness raising and capacity-building in order to overcome gaps and challenges to the full implementation of resolution 1325 (2000). It must be noted, however, that NAPs are not the only way to develop policy on women, peace and security. Some countries may choose to mainstream women, peace and security issues into other policy frameworks. Furthermore, developing policy is only the first step in implementation.

UN Security Council resolution 1325 (2000) urges Member States to take action at the national level in the following key areas:

  • Women's participation in decision-making and peace processes.
  • The protection of women and girls
  • Gender training

Although, we have seen some developments in national implementation, it is important that more Member States take responsibility for the successful implementation of resolution 1325 (2000) and ensure that it is integrated into their national policies and training programmes.
