Plan launched 2011
1. To motivate women to work in the fields of prevention of conflicts in national, regional and international institutions, to take part in international military and civilian operations and missions and, when participating there, to pay greater attention to solving the problems of local women.
2. To present the national Action Plan implementing the UNSCR 1325 to the Lithuanian society, as well as to educate and to train the personnel of institutions on the issues raised in the resolution.
3. To actively contribute to international initiatives supporting and implementing the UNSCR 1325 and its supplementing documents, particularly in the fields of women's security and protection of women's rights.
Lithuania's NAP appears to be the shortest action plan, in terms of page length in comparison to all other existing plans. Nevertheless, the plan is significant in terms of strengthening the role of women in society and in the international framework, particularly as Lithuania supports equal opportunities for women and men as well as the protection of women's rights. It is a member of NATO and the EU, as well as an active member of the UN.
Civil Society has not been mentioned in this Action Plan to have played a role in the implementation of this Action Plan, although it has been mentioned that it is important for society (more generally) to understand the importance of UNSCR 1325.
