Collaboration with Costa Rica towards a National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security

The Technical Assistance Partnership (TAP) initiative with the Government of Costa Rica supports the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship (MREC) in developing a National Action Plan (NAP) on Women, Peace and Security.

The initiative aims to support the design of the first NAP concerning resolution 1325 on Women, Peace, and Security in Costa Rica. It includes concrete actions to increase women’s participation and representation at all levels in peace and security efforts and related decision-making processes.

Under the leadership of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship, a national gender specialist in public policy and peace and Elin Miller a Canadian expert in gender equality, peace, and security will advance the participatory and collaborative process of creating a NAP on the Women, Peace, and Security agenda. They will review national legislation, international agreements and policies, identify stakeholders, and organize workshops to support the development of the first draft of the NAP.
