Vietnam considers promoting gender equality and enhancing the role and contribution of women in peacebuilding both domestically and internationally as one of the important policy priorities, and to further sharing Vietnam’s values for peace and harmony to the world. Viet Nam has been actively implementing commitments to the internationally ratified conventions, resolutions such as CEDAW, UN Convention on Human Rights, UN Convention on the Rights of Children, Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (1995), the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 and its subsequent Resolutions.

The consideration of the development of a concrete National Action Plan on WPS for Viet Nam has been confirmed by the Prime Minister in December 2022 and firmed up in 2023 with a concrete roadmap for the development of the NAP for Viet Nam, and the establishment of the National Drafting Committee that consists of 11 ministries, the National Assembly, the Committee for Ethnic Minorities Affairs, the Viet Nam Women’s Union, the Youth Union. The draft NAP is now expected to be submitted to the Prime Minister in the last quarter of 2023 for review and adoption.
