Uganda's NAP appears to be a combination of implementing the UNSCR 1325 and the GOMA Declaration, which aims to end violence against women.
"In the past three decades, several parts of Uganda, including Northern Uganda, Karamoja region, West Nile, Luweero Triangle and Kasese have experienced violent civil and armed conflicts. The most devastating conflict has been in Northern Uganda, for over two decades, resulting in hundreds of thousand people dead, over 60,000 children abducted and close to two million people internally displaced.In combination with societal factors and traditional practices the already weakened position of women creates an ideal environment for increased incidents of GBV."
Local peace initiatives incorporated within government plans at the national and local government levels, NGOs, Civil Society Organisations, and private sector, as well as a network among CSOs that handle issues of gender-based violence.
