Lebanon National Action Plan on United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 (2019-2022)
Lebanon’s 1325 national action plan comes is the result of teamwork between ministries, governmental directorates and all stakeholders, who agreed on the objectives to be reached within four years, allowing Lebanon to play a leading role in effectively implementing UNSCR 1325.
This NAP, endorsed by the Government of Lebanon, aims at increasing the participation of women in decision-making processes at all levels, including political, diplomatic, economic and also in the security and defense sectors. Moreover, it will enhance all efforts in preventing and containing armed conflicts and will provide girls and women with more effective protection measures against violence, as well as improve their conditions to access, benefit and participate in relief and recovery efforts.
The implementation of this plan requires close cooperation between all stakeholders in Lebanon and compels a review of legislations and policies to ensure equal rights and opportunities for women and men, by combating gender discrimination and eliminating the imbalance between the opportunities for men and women.
