Slovakia is currently in the process of drawing up its National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security.
The Government continues to promote all national efforts aimed at strengthening the role of women in society through the national gender equality strategy for the period 2014-2019 and the gender-equality action plan.
The Ministry of Defence has approved its own gender-equality plan, with its implementation under the responsibility of the general staff of the armed forces and with sustained, allocated funding.
Slovakia strongly supports the Secretary-General’s vision of peace and security grounded in long-term conflict prevention, inclusivity and gender equality, as well as his victim-centred approach to preventing sexual exploitation and abuse.
Slovakia made a statement affirming support for the WPS Agenda, but no specific commitment made.
Slovakia, as a co-Chair of the Group of Friends of Security Sector Reform, works closely with the Group of Friends of Gender Parity to explore opportunities to strengthen United Nations support for gender-responsive national SSR processes, enhance gender parity and gender equality and improve programming and advocacy efforts.
