Republic of Congo
The Republic of Congo developed a National Action Plan for the implementation of UNSCR 1325 on Women, Peace and Security for the period 2018-2022.
The NAP has five main priority pillars: Promotion of UNSCR 1325 and other legal texts that protect the fundamental rights of women and girls; Promotion of the participation of women in conflict prevention and resolution and in peace negotiations; Strengthening the protection of women and girls against gender-based violence in periods of peace, conflict, and post-conflict; Taking gender into account in humanitarian action, recovery, and disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration (DDR) processes; and Consideration of gender in coordination, monitoring, and evaluation of the implementation of the NAP.
The NAP for the Republic of Congo situates itself within a gender conflict analysis that analyzes conflicts over the past few decades in the country as well as the impacts of armed conflicts on women and girls and their participation of women in peace. The NAP contains a timeline, estimated budget, and details about the development, coordination, monitoring, and evaluation processes.
The Republic of Congo signed the Arms Trade Treaty in 2013.
The NAP is available in French.
