We’re pleased to launch an exciting platform for advancing women’s inclusion in peace and security. The National Action Plan Resource Center is an interactive hub for learning new strategies and sharing analysis, tools, and lessons learned for putting UN Security Council Resolution 1325 into practice.
With up-to-date information on the state of national action plans (NAPs) worldwide—including news on the latest countries to adopt NAPs—the Resource Center keeps you in the know. It showcases major highlights, as well as in-depth analysis, about each of the 48-and-counting nations that have formally adopted inclusive policies.
What difference can this make? Resolution 1325 is more than just a piece of paper; it’s a global commitment to changing the lives of women and men living in volatile areas. To showcase how this document can translate to meaningful impact, the Resource Center presents four stories that demonstrate how national action plans can make a difference in people’s lives. Follow the paths of four people as they walk toward better security for all.
The Resource Center features an extensive library of reports and articles that shed light on how to design, implement, and measure the impact of a national action plan. Whether you’re determining how best to evaluate your existing NAP or trying to build the political will for your country to adopt a plan, you’ll find the guidance you need.
Just getting started on your NAP journey? Take our interactive training course to familiarize yourself with UN Security Council Resolution 1325 and national action plans. This 30-minute module will help you understand why NAPs are important and how you can advocate for women’s participation in your own country.

We intend to build a community—from government, civil society, and beyond—that shares a commitment to building stability through inclusive policies and practices. Our vision is for this Resource Center to build upon and share the tremendous contributions of other pioneers. Please send us your feedback and suggestions; together we can realize the promise of truly inclusive security worldwide.
The National Action Plan Resource Center would not be possible without generous support from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. We also rely on additional partners around the world who are generating meaningful analysis and assembling resources on this issue, such as Peacewomen.org.
