Rwanda developed a National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security based on two pillars, the first being that of promoting the equal participation of women and men in all peace initiatives at all levels, and the second of integrating gender perspectives into peace and security efforts.
Rwanda made a statement affirming support for the WPS Agenda, but no specific commitment made.
In October, the President of the Republic appointed a fully genderbalanced Cabinet. Women occupy 61 per cent of seats in the Rwandan Parliament. Fifty per cent of judges are women, and 50 per cent of provincial governors are women.
