Plan launched 2015
1. To increase the presence of women in peace and humanitarian missions as well as decision-making roles.
2. To improve their political participation in peace and security matters, particularly in the process of peace negotiations, conflict management and on decision-making levels.
3. Introduce a gender perspective in all peacebuilding activities and missions, including disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration.
4. To protect womens' and girls' human rights in conflict and post-conflict countries, especially in combating sexual and gender-based violence.
The Argentinian NAP focuses on the importance of strengthening women's inclusion and participation in politics, and on introducing gender perspectives in all matters of security.
Civil society actors were early convened to participate in the development of the plan. Women's organisations were consulted on their specific proposals and given the opportunity to incorporate their inputs in the development process. The NAP does not however mention that civil society actors will play a part in the monitoring and/or evaluation of the plan.
Women in Peacekeeping
The NAP assigned several actions to the Argentinian state related to the deployment and participation of women in "peace missions". One task assigns the responsibility to identify the breakdown of deployment in peace and humanitarian missions according to sex/task, and "include statistical data on the willingness of the female candidates to deploy in peace missions". Another specifically mentions increasing female personnel's participation in the army and in the security forces deployed in peace missions.
