The Republic of Moldova has approved a national action plan that provides women with an active role in creating the security context

The Government of the Republic of Moldova approved today the National Programme for the implementation of the UN Security Council’s Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace, and Security for the period 2023-2027. According to the provisions, women are not only beneficiaries of security, but are also creators of security, a perspective that could modernise our country.

This is the second Plan adopted by the Republic of Moldova, the main purpose of which is to create a series of opportunities for the qualitative representation of women in the security and defence sector both at home and abroad, including in the conflict negotiation processes, in order to ensure the security of the whole society – for both women and men.

However, this is the first time that the National Programme for the implementation of UN Security Council’s Resolution 1325 includes a series of actions to be implemented jointly with local government bodies.

The estimated cost of the Programme is MDL 23.6 million. Funding of the Programme requires state budget funds within the limits of the budget allocations approved by the Annual Budget Law, as well as assistance from development partners.
