Iraq was the first country in the Middle East to adopt a National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security. The expiration of the existing plan is happening in a period of significant transition, given the military defeat of Daesh and the formation of a new national government. It is in this context that this project aims to assess current opportunities for enhancing the effectiveness of Iraq’s next National Action Plan. Project activities include: (1) conducting an assessment of the current environment, including the level of receptivity and commitment among key stakeholders; (2) identifying key points of entry, including within government ministries and civil society; (3) providing materials and tools to key stakeholders in support of the drafting process; and (4) developing recommendations on next steps.
