Event description

 

UN Women and the Government of Japan will convene a joint Asia-Pacific Regional Symposium on National Action Plans on Women, Peace and Security, that will take place from July 11 – 13, 2016 in Bangkok. This three-day symposium will bring together regional government representatives including Ministers and senior Parliamentarians, leading academics and experts, civil society stakeholders, as well as representatives from UN entities, to lay the groundwork for effective implementation at all stages of the NAP cycle and to consider concrete measures to ensure that NAPs have a beneficial impact on women affected by conflict.

Objectives

Building on the key findings and recommendations of UN Women’s landmark 2015 Global Study on the implementation of UNSCR 1325, as well as the 2013 Global Technical Review Meeting on “Building accountability for implementation of Security Council resolutions on Women, Peace and Security”, the regional symposium will provide a forum to reflect on the development, implementation and review process of NAPs, and share experiences with counterparts in the region, who are also in the process of, or intend to start, developing a national action plan. In addition, the conference will consider regional thematic priorities, and discuss current tools and approaches for effective NAP implementation, including useful monitoring and evaluation frameworks, dedicated and sustainable budget allocations, as well as localization strategies.
