Monitoring and evaluation is a critical component of the Full Cycle of WPS implementation. Developing locally acceptable and adaptable indicators and collecting reliable data is necessary to track implementation progress, identify and address challenges. But equally importantly, it is crucial to use the collected data effectively to conduct, advocacy, raise awareness, ensure accountability and strengthen future implementation.
The 1325 Civil Society Scorecard developed by GNWP, with support from Cordaid, is a visual tool that allows users to track the implementation of Women, Peace, and Security resolutions over the years by attributing a score to a range of locally accepted and adaptable indicators. The 1325 Scorecard uses indicators developed through the civil society-led monitoring project “Women Count.” The indicators have been broken down into local and national levels to capture the status of implementation, and each indicator is attributed a category with a built-in aggregate score and allows users to see visual progress, or gaps, over the years.
On July 30-31, 2019, GNWP held a Regional WPS Monitoring and Evaluation Training in Kampala, Uganda, during which the 1325 Scorecard was shared with participants from Burundi and DRC. First “completed” 1325 Scorecards will be launched during the 19th Anniversary of UNSCR 1325 in October 2019. GNWP is committed to constantly improving the 1325 Scorecard to make sure that it is applicable and easily adaptable to all contexts. If you have any questions or would like to provide feedback on the 1325 Scorecard, please contact GNWP Program Officer Dinah Lakehal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
