UN Women supported the state institutions with the implementation of the Revised National Action Plan for Implementation of UNSCR 1325 on WPS for 2016-2020 (NAP 1325), and the National Action Plan on the implementation of the CEDAW Committee Concluding Observations to the eighth periodic report of Ukraine on by 2021 .
In 2020, UN Women supported the development of second NAP 1325 for 2021-2025. The NAP includes several areas of responsibility of the state institutions on mainstreaming gender into peace and security agenda, including:
- equal participation of women and men in decision-making on conflict prevention, conflict resolution, post-conflict recovery, with focus on security and defense sector;
- gender-sensitive system for identifying, preventing and responding to security threats;
- process of post-conflict recovery, and implementation of the transitional justice system according to the principles of equal rights and opportunities for women and men;
- protection against gender-based violence, sexual violence (conflict-related and during peacetime);
- development of institutional capacity for the effective implementation of the WPS agenda in accordance with international standards.
