Plan launched 2015-2019
1. Improve the situation of women in conflict areas as well as post-conflict areas, focusing on education and empowerment of women and by that establishing greater opportunities for the involvement of women in peace processes in their own community
2. Raise awareness of the impact of conflicts on women as well as of women’s role in ensuring peace and security; and the participation of women in conflict resolution and decision-making processes.
3. Enhance co-operation and information exchange on national and international level.
"Estonia’s second action plan focuses on improving the situation of women both in conflict and post-conflict areas, raising awareness, and enhancing co-operation and information exchange."
Representatives of civil society organisations "played a major role in implementing the development cooperation projects, and the work done also delivered visible results."
Women in Peacekeeping
It has been acknowledged that "the legislation of Estonia provides equal opportunities for men and women to work and run for security related positions; however, the percentage of women in such positions remains modest. One of the goals of resolution 1325 is greater participation of women in security and peace processes." In this instance, one measure of the NAP is to be more active in continuing "to introduce opportunities for women to enlist and progress in conscript service and to join active service and voluntary national defence organisations."
