Mission and objectives

ONU FEMMES est l'Entité des Nations Unies pour l'égalité des sexes et l'autonomisation des femmes.


The ‘Women, Peace and Security agenda,’ founded by UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325) in 2000 and followed by seven additional resolutions for ensuring that the needs and priorities of women and girls impacted by conflict are addressed and that peace is brokered in an inclusive and sustainable manner. Countries were encouraged to establish national mechanisms at the national level, which can make the resolutions effective in each member country of the United Nations. In 2010 the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) adopted its very first National Action Plan (NAP) on UNSCR 1325. However, the NAP on 1325 faced a set of challenges during its implementation. Taking these challenges and gaps into consideration, the DRC adopted its 2nd National action plan in 2020. UN Women supported the development of this 2nd National Action Plan for the implementation of UNSCR 1325, as well as the setting up of the national secretariat for the implementation of UNSCR 1325. In this dynamic, UN Women will support the Government in the implementation of the National Action Plan of the Resolution 1325 (2nd generation) for the period 2020-2023, ensuring full collaboration and participation of civil society to enhance women’s protection and participation in conflict prevention and resolution, and post-conflict state-building.
