National action plans

  • In many conflict and post-conflict contexts, coordination on gender-based violence is undertaken by a working group of government, UN, and NGO actors based on a joint strategy or action plan. These working groups on gender-based violence or violence against women may take many forms, and this handbook provides useful advice on the principles and key elements for adoption and implementation of any such national action plan.
  • In other countries, coordination revolves around the development, adoption, implementation, and monitoring of a national action plan on women, peace, and security, which invariably include a pillar or sector on violence against women. An updated list of these national action plans can be found here, as well as guidance in English, Spanish, French, and Arabic.
