The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls, the empowerment of women and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. Placing women’s rights at the center of all its efforts, the UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality are translated into action throughout the world.

The United Republic of Tanzania, while fostering its efforts in sustaining in-country peace and stability, has been contributing substantially to regional and international peace and security. Tanzania has historically hosted hundreds of thousands of refugees and still does so currently. It also contributes substantially to UN and African Union conflict resolutions, peace negotiations and peacekeeping operations. As of March 2022, Tanzania is providing about 1,479 peacekeepers out of which 124 are women to five UN Peacekeeping missions. Tanzania is also a member of the International Conference of the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR), established to bring peace and stability to the Great Lakes region.
Tanzania’s positive policy environment on the implementation of national GEWE priorities provides a strong foundation for the development of National Action Plan on Women Peace and Security in Tanzania (TNAP WPS). The development of URT’s first NAP1325, is led by the Ministries of Community Development Gender Women and Special Groups (MCDGWSG) in Mainland and the Ministry of Community Development Elderly Gender and Children (MCDEGC) in Zanzibar, with the technical support from the Mwalimu Nyerere Foundation (MNF) and UN Women.
With the adoption of UNSCR 1325 on Women, Peace, and Security in 2000, many lessons have been learned to foster good practices on National Action Plans (NAP) development and implementation. Two of those relate to the development of a comprehensive M&E Framework and NAP Costing to ensure effective monitoring of implementation and adequate and available resources for implementation.
As the Women, Peace and Security National Taskforce will be entering the drafting phase, it is important to ensure that it is done alongside the development of a comprehensive M&E Framework and NAP Costing.
