The development of the NAP was initiated in coordination with civil society, and conducted through the establishment of the following structures:
1. Steering Committee with the Minister of Foreign Affairs as the Chairperson Member;
2. Technical Working Group representatives from international organizations and foreign diplomatic missions in Kabul;
3. Drafting Committee;
4. Coordination Committee.
The NAP is a government policy and a reflection of government’s commitments with regards to the implementation of UNSCR 1325. Lead implementing agencies are government agencies, ministries, structures and institutions, while civil society, media and the private sector play an important role as the supporting agencies.
NAP Monitoring and Evaluation
A separate Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Plan is designed, which includes annual monitoring, mid-term (after two years) and final review (Evaluation) in the fourth year. The M&E Plan will include tracking and monitoring of financing for the NAP to ensure transparent and effective implementation, for which the Steering Committee is responsible.
