Our work

We have been monitoring the development of NAPs for many years, and publish breakdowns of each NAP on our dedicated monitoring site. On this site, we also feature the work of WILPF members who are advocating for, developing, implementing, and monitoring NAPs in their own countries.



Recent examples of NAPs analyzed include Palestine, Sudan, Uganda, Lithuania and Japan.  See our NAP database for our analysis. If you know of a NAP that is not available on our site, please contact us at peacewomen@wilpf.org
