The Women, Peace and Security Agenda in Lebanon: A Key Tool for Supporting Recovery from Economic Crisis and the COVID-19 Pandemic in Lebanon

COVID-19 has reached Lebanon at a time of deep economic crisis. Lockdown measures have accentuated the crisis and generated a spike in unpaid care work and gender-based violence – both of which have been borne largely by women. Tackling this pandemic requires institutional reform on a magnitude not yet seen in Lebanon. It requires holistic efforts to address issues of governance, corruption and inequality. In this undertaking, this Policy Brief looks at Lebanon’s NAP 1325 and how it provides a useful framework for action; as it prioritizes the gendered needs of women and girls in times of crisis, pandemics, and conflicts.
