DFAT Implementation Plan of Australia’s National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security 2021-2031
Under Australia’s second National Action Plan, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is the whole-of-government lead on WPS. DFAT recognises that WPS national action plans support the systematic and systemic action needed to achieve gender equality, peace and security in a just, safe world. The DFAT Implementation Plan outlines DFAT’s contribution to the whole-of-government efforts to advance the WPS agenda, encompassing principles and priorities, means of implementation and accountabilities. DFAT will invest in women’s participation and leadership, as well as the mainstreaming of gender and the WPS agenda in conflict prevention, resolution, relief and recovery, as well as across peace processes and security.
