The Women, Peace, and Security Agenda

The Women, Peace, and Security (WPS) agenda is not only a moral imperative but also a strategic necessity. Empowered women contribute significantly to more prosperous and secure societies. Recognizing this, the UK government has launched the UK Women, Peace, and Security National Action Plan 2023–2027. This comprehensive plan outlines strategic directions across diplomatic, development, security, and defense efforts.
