In 2012 the Federal Government launched the Australian National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security 2012-2018 (the NAP) as the first step towards implementing United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325). To improve implementation of the NAP, in mid-2013 civil society began a shadow reporting process, the output of which is the Annual Civil Society Report Card (2013 Report Card, 2014 Report Card and 2015 Report Card).
The Report Card provides a structured and independent response to the progress of implementation and to make recommendations to government.
The latest Report Card focuses on how Australia’s next National Action Plan, beginning in 2019, should be consulted on, developed and implemented. Hear from senior leaders in government, civil society, academia, as well as our audience who will discuss:
- How the next National Action Plan should be consulted upon, developed and implemented;
- The links between global and local issues and how they impact the Women, Peace and Security agenda;
- Lessons learned from the first National Action Plan and how they can be addressed in the second plan;
- The role of civil society and the importance their engagement.
Join us to take the conversation forward.
