Plan launched 2007
1. Enhancing the participation of women in peace missions and their decision-making roles
2. Promote the inclusion of the gender perspective in all peacebuilding activities.
3. Ensure the specific training of personnel involved in peace missions, in the field of equality and on the various aspects of Resolution 1325, in addition to promoting and disseminating knowledge.
4. Protect the human rights of women and girls in Conflict and post-conflict (including refugee Displaced persons) and to promote the empowerment and participation of women in the processes of negotiation and implementation of peace.
5. Incorporate the principle of equal treatment and opportunities between women and men in the planning and implementation of activities to Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR), as well as the training for all staff participating in these processes.
6. Encourage the participation of Spanish civil society in relation to Resolution 1325.
Spain does not have a recent history of conflicts, but does get involved in international and regional operations, which is mentioned within the Action Plan. It is relatively short and, unlike other NAPs, does not included leading actors who are responsible for monitoring and implementing actions.
Civil society organisations will actively be working with bodies such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation in order to monitor women being included in decion-making roles.
