Bi-annually all NAP-signatories meet to strategize, share and inspire on the joint commitments we´ve made to implement Security Council Resolution 1325 of the United Nations on Women, Peace and Security. This particular bi-annual meeting on October 10th was a special edition as the Netherlands is preparing for our seat in the Security Council in 2018. This provides a major chance for the Netherlands to take a leading role in better organizing a global integrated approach in peace and security, with meaningful participation of women and youth.
