About the Report Card
The 2014 Second Annual Civil Society Report Card is the output of the 2014 Annual Civil Society Dialogue, which was hosted by the Australian National Committee for UN Women, the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID), the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) and ANU Gender Institute. The purpose of the Annual Dialogue is to ensure continued engagement with the Federal Government’s ‘Australian National Action Plan on Women, Peaceand Security 2012-2018’ (NAP) through the implementation process. The Civil Society Report Card forms the basis of shadow reporting to parliament about the National Action Plan. More information about the Civil Society Dialogues and the report card is included in the 2013-2014 Gender Institute Report (pp16-17). This project represents some of the Gender Institute’s key external partnerships involving collaboration with the Australian National Committee for UN Women (UN Women), the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID), and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF).
