Angola launched its first National Action Plan for a period of four years (2017-2020). The NAP has been developed and will be monitored and evaluated by the Ministry for Family and Promotion of Women and the Ministry of National Defense and Interior.
Even though the NAP includes an allocated budget (it is based on financial resources from each Ministry), there are several gaps overlooked through the development process. The participation of civil society in the implementation of UNSCR 1325 is limited. Civil society are included as responsible entities for certain objectives; however, there is no role allocated to them in the development or monitoring of the NAP implementation. Any efforts to ensure disarmament and mitigate the impact of arms proliferation on women are not mentioned at all.
