Looking Back, Looking Forward: Consultations on Canada’s WPS National Action Plan was a consultation process in the spring of 2017.
Canada’s first National Action Plan (C-NAP) for the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security (WPS) was launched in 2010 and expired in March 2016.
The global history of WPS implementation indicates that close cooperation with civil society experts is an important element. The Government and civil society, under the auspices of the Women, Peace and Security Network – Canada (WPSN-C), co-chaired a two day consultation conference. The conference brought together the government C-NAP partners and civil society experts to build on the consultations on development assistance and defence of 2016, exchange information on C-NAP renewal, and work collaboratively in developing an ambitious and robust renewed C-NAP.
