This project focuses on supporting the localization process of Ukraine’s National Action Plan on the implementation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 on Women, Peace and Security (WPS), which came into force in 2021 and will be in effect until 2025. The Ukrainian Women’s Fund is establishing regional coalitions in nine regions of Ukraine that develop and implement context-specific and results-oriented policies and solutions that empower women and address specific peace and security-related concerns in those regions. Project activities include: (1) supporting the establishment of nine regional coalitions to work on developing local action plans on WPS; (2) conducting capacity building events for regional coalitions; and (3) supporting regional action plans through grants aimed at advancing the implementation of these plans.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) enhanced mobilization of regional coalitions to empower women in the peace and security sector in nine regions of Ukraine; (2) enhanced implementation of WPS action plans in nine regions by regional coalitions on UNSCR 1325; and (3) increased use of project-generated solutions and practices on WPS by regional and national authorities to inform policies in the peace and security sector.
