In December 2021, The Republic of Kazakhstan approved its first National Action Plan for the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 to promote human rights, gender equality, and a life free from discrimination for women and girls. It is a five-page document that intends to implement the WPS agenda in government policies through a wide range of activities. These include an increase in the number of women participating in defense-related activities especially in relation to conflict prevention and resolution; the implementation of a gender perspective in the security and defense system; and the prevention of gender-based violence through the media. Kazakhstan was a non-permanent member in the UN Security Council once, between 2017-2018.
