Namibia National Action Plan

Namibia adopted its first-generation National Action Plan (NAP) in 2019 for the period 2019-2024 and it is based on the four pillars of Resolution 1325. It addresses women as both actors and victims in conflict and non-conflict situations. The NAP was developed by a National Task Team which consisted of several ministries in collaboration with UN technical advisors with consultative meetings held with Civil Society Organizations. This first-generation was developed based on Namibia’s National Gender Policy, for the period of 2010-2020. The NAP complements national mechanisms and frameworks developed for the advancement of women’s rights in Namibia. The NAP is focused on the importance of safety for all women and girls in Namibia through creating a peaceful Namibia where all women, men, girls, and boys have equal rights and live without fear. The NAP includes an allocated budget.
