Evaluation of the Danish National Action Plans for the Implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security

October 2019

Summary

In October 2000, the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 1325 to protect women and girls during conflict and instability. Denmark was the first country to adopt a national implementation plan in 2005 and is about to finalize the third. This evaluation assesses the extent to which the implementation plans have brought about the desired results.

The report presents the findings of the evaluation of Denmark’s second and third Danish National Action Plans (NAPs) for the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on women, peace and security (2008–2013 and 2014–2019). The purpose of the evaluation was to learn from past implementation and inform the development and strategic direction of the fourth Danish NAP (2020-2025). It also aims to provide a constructive discussion about Denmark’s engagement with the broader WPS agenda.

The evaluation was carried out by British company Social Development Direct.
