Portugal NAP (2009-2013)
Commits to raising awareness in all the relevant international forums of the importance of establishing national actions plans for the implementation of resolution 1325 (2000).
Portugal strongly believes that National Action Plans constitute an important mechanism to accelerate progress in implementing this resolution.
Portugal launched its first National Action Plan for Women, Peace and Security in 2009 for the period 2009-2013.
The implementation of activities set out in the document will be financed from the budgets of the relevant participating ministries and from the budgets of their subordinate units, academic centers, think-tanks and non‑governmental organizations. Disarmament is not mentioned in the NAP except for in reference to the general WPS agenda.
The NAP sets out four major outcomes. The first one involves the meaningful participation of women in conflict prevention and peacekeeping. The second is about the implementation of the WPS agenda through Polish humanitarian and development aid. The next two outcomes include the protection and support of victims of gender-based and sexual violence in conflict; and the promotion and development of the WPS agenda in Poland and in the framework of international cooperation. The outcomes of the National Action Plan will be implemented in 18 areas, including participation of women in missions and operations abroad; women in uniformed services and in the foreign service; support for victims of sexual violence in conflict; training on the WPS agenda.
