National Action Plan 1325

Together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, WO=MEN coordinates the National Action Plan 1325. The Dutch National Action Plan (NAP) 1325 is a partnership between the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Defence, Education, Culture and Science and Justice and Security, the police and 60 Dutch civil society organisations. NAP 1325 contains agreements on how the Netherlands implements UN Security Council Resolution 1325 and the successive resolutions and other international obligations and commitments on 'Women, Peace and Security'. For example, consider CEDAW General Recommendation 30 and the UN Arms Trade Treaty.


In NAP 1325, Dutch actors have agreed that they want to support women, men and young people in conflict and post-conflict areas in their fight for inclusive peace and security. The Netherlands does this with missions and local women's organisations, human rights defenders and peace activists in (post) conflict countries. But also in the Netherlands. NAP 1325-IV for the period 2021 to 2025 is the fourth Dutch Action Plan. Previously, National Action Plans were in force for the period 2008-2011, for the period 2012-2015 and for the period 2016-2019/2020.

 WO=MEN coordinates and supports the more than 60 social signatories and implementers of this plan. For more information about the NAP 1325-IV and the NAP 1325 signatories, visit www.nap1325.nl and Rijksoverheid.nl. Watch this launch video with contributions from, among others, Ank Bijleveld, Minister of Defense and Ankie Broekers-Knol, State Secretary for Justice and Security.
