Implementing Gender Provisions: National Action Plan on Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism in the Philippines
This publication was commissioned by UN Women as part of the programme Empowered Women, Peaceful Communities, funded generously by the Government of Japan. This guide has been designed to be used as a resource to help ensure gender-sensitive and gender-responsive implementation of the Philippine National Action Plan on Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (NAP P/CVE). It is intended for use by the stakeholders identified in the NAP P/CVE, including government agencies, religious leaders, members of civil society, and nongovernment organisations.
The role of women in conflict prevention, peacemaking and peacebuilding is a foundational consideration of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda. Through consultation workshops organized in partnership with the government of Philippines, provisions in this guide were developed to address the specific impact of violent extremism on women and men.
