(a) Maintain its dedication to ensuring the effective implementation of Security Council resolution 1325 (2000) on women, peace and security and subsequent resolutions in countries affected by conflict, including through ensuring that its national action plan contributes to significantly increasing the participation of women in peace processes;
As part of the Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security 2015-2019, New Zealand’s approach to implementing UN Security Council resolutions will focus on four key areas: advocating for women's empowerment and participation in conflict and peacebuilding; increasing the number of women deployed in police and military roles; ensuring gender analysis informs New Zealand’s peace support responses; promoting efforts to combat sexual violence.
Police reports annually on the progress of its key areas of responsibility under the National Action Plan (NAP) for the Implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security. New Zealand’s approach to implementing the NAP focuses on four key areas associated with peace-building and conflict prevention. These are: prevention, participation, protection, and peacebuilding, relief and recovery.
Police is committed to moving its workforce to be representative of the communities we serve. This includes ensuring we have representative levels of women, Māori and other ethnic groups within our recruitment, promotion and retention rates. This will support more wāhine Māori being able to participate in peace processes under the guidance of the National Action Plan.
