Mozambique National Action Plan

Mozambique adopted its first-generation National Action Plan (NAP) in 2018 for the period 2018-2022. The development of the NAP was done in collaboration between the Gender, Children and Social Welfare Ministry of Mozambique in partnership with UN Women and the governments of Iceland and Norway. The priority area focused on the NAP which will be implemented by state institutions, civil society, and cooperation partners in the context of women’s participation in conflict resolution and management is the: assistance for displaced and refugee women; the prevention of violence, and sexual abuse; and post-conflict reconstruction. This NAP focuses and highlights the importance of rights of women and girls in conflict times and post-conflict and also speaks to the need of integrating gender perspectives in all strategies and actions related to conflict prevention and management; expanding efforts for the security, physical and mental health dignity of women and girls; and securing the rights of women and girls in conflict and post-conflict situations.
