With generous support from Canada’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Development, the Government of the Republic of Korea and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, the regional project, Empowering Women for Sustainable Peace: Preventing Violence and Promoting Social Cohesion in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) aims at advancing the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda in ASEAN. This project covers the period from October 2020 to 30 June 2025, and focuses primarily on enhancing normative frameworks, on capacity-building and on the exchange of knowledge and good practices at the regional level. It also supports national-level implementation in Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam, which have in turn promoted strong synergies across countries.
Significant progress has been made in the second year of implementation (January to December 2022) of the project, with all annual targets achieved and 43 percent of immediate outcomes and output-level project targets already reached or surpassed, while the remaining targets are on track. The highlights of the progress and results attained by outcomes are featured in this document.
