1. Achieve gender-responsiveness and meaningful participation of women in the security sector and in peace operations.
  2.  Achieve the meaningful participation of women in preventing radicalization and violent extremism, as well as in national and regional peace building.
  3.  Ensure the availability of gender-sensitive humanitarian services (including psychological, social, legal and medical services) that are safely accessible by Jordanians and refugees (including those women and girls most vulnerable to violence and in need of protection, in host communities and refugee camps in Jordan).
  4. Foster a community culture that recognizes the gender needs, the importance of gender equality and the role of women in peace and security.


Jordan’s NAP is focused on Jordan’s local and regional context as a peaceful country surrounded and impacted by its neighbors’ conflicts. As such, its priorities are in countering violent extremism and implementing gender-sensitive approaches to the humanitarian needs of refugees within its borders. As one of the world’s leading contributors to international peacekeeping efforts, it also focuses on how to support UN-level implementation of UNSCR 1325 through DPKO and in multilateral responses to conflict. This context-specific plan is well-tailored to Jordan’s unique situation. Further, it has a well-specified monitoring and evaluation framework through 2021, making implementation feasible.

Civil Society:

Civil society voices were not intently sought out or included in the drafting process of this NAP. They are primarily noted as a mechanism through which humanitarian aid can be more attentive to gendered needs of refugees. The plan also focuses on international civil society rather than domestic efforts, a weakness that may hinder implementation efforts.
