The 2018-2022 NAP identifies seven strategic outcomes which set the vision for the UK WPS implementation strategy in conflict settings. These strategic outcomes have been selected for their contributions to the four pillars of WPS, their relevance across the nine focus countries and the ability of the UK to lead or make a significant contribution on them. These include:

  1. Decision-making: An increase in women’s meaningful and representative participation and leadership in decision making processes, including conflict prevention and peacebuilding at community and national levels;

  2. Peacekeeping: A gender perspective is consistently applied in the setting and implementation of international standards and mandates for peace operations;

  3. Gender-based Violence: An increase in the number and scale of interventions that integrate effective measures to prevent and respond to gender-based violence, particularly violence against women and girls which is the most prevalent form of gender-based violence;

  4. Humanitarian Response: Women’s and girls’ needs are more effectively met by humanitarian actors and interventions through needs-based responses that promote meaningful participation and leadership;

  5. Security and Justice: Security and justice actors are increasingly accountable to women and girls, and responsive to their rights and needs.

  6. Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism: Ensure the participation and leadership of women in developing strategies to prevent and counter violent extremism;

  7. UK Capabilities: HMG continues to strengthen its capability, processes and leadership to deliver against WPS commitments.
