Workshop on National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security
03:01 PM 07/11/2023
(LĐXH)- The 6th November 2023 marks a historic gathering of government leaders, officials, and representatives from various ministries, international organizations, UN agencies, provinces, academia, and social organizations, numbering over 200, convened to champion the cause of women's empowerment and peace in Vietnam.
The assembly was convened to discuss and actively contribute to the formulation of the first National Action Plan on Women, Peace, and Security (NAP WPS). The workshop is organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is supported by UN Women in Vietnam, together with Canada and United Kingdom’s governments.
Recognizing the paramount importance of the Women, Peace, and Security agenda in the context of Vietnam, the participants engaged in robust deliberations.
Key topics on the agenda included the review and refinement of the draft NAP WPS, fostering efficient coordination throughout the development process, and securing necessary financing for the realization of the NAP WPS objectives. 
The event symbolizes a significant step in Vietnam's commitment to promoting gender equality, peace, and security. By bringing together diverse stakeholders and fostering collaboration, Vietnam aims to address critical issues and establish a framework for a more inclusive, secure, and peaceful society.
The workshop stands as a strong testament to Vietnam's dedication to realizing the principles of the Women, Peace, and Security Agenda that had been established by the United Nations Security Council in October 2000 through the Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325) and its subsequent Resolutions on women, peace, and security.
NAP WPS will become a blueprint for Vietnam in localizing the WPS agenda into Vietnam’s unique culture and context encompassing the four pillars of WPS agenda - prevention, protection, participation and relief and recovery – and the emerging security threats such as climate change, disasters, cybersecurity, and pandemics./.
