Angola-2015 Commitments

Increase the participation of women and integrate gender equality into all stages of peacebuilding processes, including at all decision-making levels.

Provide training and ensure the empowerment of all women, girls and boys, as well as military and policy officers, in peacebuilding processes, both with regard to gender equality and gender-based violence as well as other relevant aspects of resolutions 1325 (2000) and 1820 (2008).

Promote and protect the human rights of women and girls in conflict and post-conflict situations, their economic and social empowerment and their participation in civil society, taking into account the need to prevent and eliminate gender- and conflict-based violence and promote the empowerment of women.

Include a gender perspective in the national budget with a view to fulfilling the commitments established by resolution 1325 (2000).

2016 Update:
