National Action Plans and Beyond: Local Women Peacebuilders Strategies

In November 2022, GPPAC, in partnership with the Centro Studi Difesa Civile (Roma, Italy), organised an online learning exchange focused on National Action Plans (NAPs) provisions and implementation in different geographical areas. The learning event brought together gender experts from different organisations and several regions of the world. They discussed how NAPs can be tools for real change in peace and security and identified possible synergies with policies and initiatives at the global, regional, and local levels.

The following key learnings emerged during the session:

  • Meaningful participation of CSOs enhances the transformative potential of NAPs
  • Regional and local policies and initiatives reinforce the ground-up approach
  • A global framework is crucial in focusing NAP's┬árole for local infrastructures for peace
