The V National Plan for Gender Equality, Citizenship and Non-discrimination 2014-2017 establishes, in its measure 64, the elaboration of the II National Action Plan for the Implementation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000) on Women, Peace and Security (II PNA 1325). This Resolution expresses concern about the unequal impact of armed conflicts on women and men, and calls for an increase in the participation of women and for the full integration of a gender equality dimension into the prevention, management and resolution of armed conflicts, not only in countries affected by armed conflict (or in post-conflict reconstruction), but also in peaceful countries.
The approval of the II PNA 1325 by the Resolution of the Council of Ministers 50/2014, of 26 August, fits within the commitments accepted by Portugal in the framework of the United Nations, the Council of Europe, the European Union and the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries, and it intends to fulfil the objectives of the Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence Against Women and Domestic Violence (Istanbul Convention). Portugal was the first European Union country to ratify this Convention on 5 February 2013.
The II National Action Plan for the implementation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000) on Women, Peace and Security (2014-2018) (II PNA 1325) defines the way in which Portugal will continue to promote and implement the goals of that resolution at the national and international level.
