Full Cycle WPS Implementation: Monitoring


Full Cycle WPS Implementation: Monitoring

Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) are incorporated into all components of GNWP work on WPS implementation. We make sure M&E activities are included in the costing of the NAP; and support national and local stakeholders to plan for monitoring and evaluating of their Action Plans on UNSCR 1325.  

GNWP’s 1325 Monitoring Project was the first CSO initiative that regularly monitored the implementation of the Women and Peace and Security resolutions. Between 2010 and 2014, it was implemented in 25 countries and territories: Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Burundi, Canada, Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Fiji, India, Iraq, Kenya, Liberia, Libya, Nagorno-Karabakh, Nepal, Netherlands, Philippines, Rwanda, Serbia, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, and Uganda. The results of the monitoring project are presented in GNWP’s annual publication “Women Count – Security Council Resolution 1325: Civil Society Monitoring Report.”

The publication’s editions from 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 are available online. In 2015, GNWP conducted a Civil Society Survey on the implementation of UNSCR 1325, which contributed to the Global Study by Radhika Coomaraswamy.

The Civil Society Monitoring enhanced the capacity of the civil society in the 25 countries to hold their governments accountable for UNSCR 1325 implementation. It also led to the production of country-specific reports that could be used as strong advocacy tools. Based on the reports, GNWP developed Policy Briefs on UNSCR 1325, which serve as a concise and practical resource for advocacy, as they provide concrete recommendations for policy-makers. The policy briefs from 2012 can be found here.

To consolidate these impacts, GNWP developed the UNSCR 1325 Scorecard, an easy to use visual monitoring tool that serves as a guidepost in assessing progress in WPS implementation along the three key pillars of participation, prevention and protection.
