This third and final annual report for the current UK National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security reviews UK progress in delivering our commitments over the past year in addition to looking back over the 3-year period. It was laid in Parliament with a written ministerial statement by the Foreign Secretary.
The report provides an update on our 6 focus countries, Afghanistan, Burma, Democratic Republic of Congo, Libya, Somalia and Syria, as well as examples from other fragile and conflict affected countries. It also looks at our interventions at the international level and efforts to build our own capacity to deliver.
The UK National Action Plan, published in June 2014, set out our priorities on Women, Peace and Security for 2014 to 2017. It is the guiding national policy document that provides direction and vision to the government and its partners as we work to ensure that women and girls are at the centre of our efforts to prevent, respond to and resolve conflict.
