Ukraine

Analysis on the 2020-2025 NAP is forthcoming. Ukraine is also revising its NAP within the context of the 2022 Russian invasion of the country and the ensuing war that has affected the lives of Ukrainians and led to widespread displacement.

Ukraine adopted its first National Action Plan (NAP) in 2016 for the period 2016-2020. The NAP was developed through the joint efforts between different national institutions reporting to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine. The NAP includes six pillars of action: peacekeeping and peace-protecting activities; women’s participation in peacebuilding; prevention of conflicts and violence; protection of women and girls affected by conflicts; provision of assistance and rehabilitation of people affected by conflicts; and monitoring efforts. The NAP approaches the implementation of the Women, Peace, and Security (WPS) agenda both domestically and internationally, with the overall goal to eliminate cultural barriers that hinder the full participation of women in all aspects of negotiations and resolution of conflicts and/or matters of peace and security. The NAP includes a detailed monitoring and evaluation framework, including an allocated budget.  

At the multilateral level, Ukraine most recently served as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for the period 2016-2017.
