This project is part of the Civilian Deployment Platform, which provides Canadian experts to organizations to support increased peace, security, and stability for people, particularly women and girls, in fragile and conflict-affected states. This project deploys a Canadian expert to the Office of the Special Representative for Women, Peace and Security (WPS). The expert seeks to enhance the capacity of the Office to promote inclusive and gender-responsive peace and security policies/programmes/operations in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) by developing gender mainstreaming capacity-building materials and tools, supporting NATO divisions in the implementation and integration of WPS and Action Plans, and enhancing the tracking, monitoring and reporting on the implementation of NATO’s WPS commitments.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) Increased understanding of and capacity among NATO International Civilian and Military Staff to use/apply sex-disaggregated data, results reporting and gender-analysis; and (2) Strengthened capacity of NATO to address gender inequality and integrate WPS priorities through the Alliance’s three core tasks of collective defense, crisis management, and cooperative security.
