This is a meta evaluation of the eight WPS strategic partnerships funded by the NL MoFA in 2016-2020, in Afghanistan, Colombia, DRC, Iraq, Libya, South Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The partnershps contributed to the three NAP III outcomes. Good practices emerged:
• Adopting a broad/ intersectional approach to gender in WPS: not only work with women and girls but also directly engage with men and boys to transform gender norms.
• Broadening the range and scope of WPS approaches, activities and themes
• Aligning and linking with national and local (WPS) frameworks and processes, thus creating synergies, avoiding overlap and increasing institutional take-up and thus sustainability.
• Flexibility: adapt to shifting political and security dynamics, as well as the Covid-19 pandemic, crucial for work in conflict-affected societies.
