Afghanistan’s NAP 1325 (2015 – 2018): A Critical Assessment

This assessment was carried out in April 2018 to examine progress toward implementing Afghanistan’s NAP 1325 since June 2015, with a focus on the budgeting process to fund implementation. Despite the impressively organized and efficient budgeting process, the fact remains that movement on implementing NAP 1325 took almost two years to commence. In many ways, this long delay to start implementation is symptomatic of all other well-meaning policies made in Afghanistan since 2001: policies and plans tend to mostly remain on paper while “the public” is almost always absent from the making of policies and their implementation.

Chronic Conflict, Poverty, and Child Labor: Evidence from Kandahar, Bamyan, Herat, and Balkh

All studies of child labor show, overwhelmingly, that poverty is a major driver of the problem.

There are, in addition, societal impacts from widespread child labor, such as the emergence of whole generations […]

NAP 1325 Monitor – Monitoring Cycle 2 : May-August 2017

Research to date indicates that progress toward the implementation of NAP 1325 has been slow, at best. Disagreements between the Government of Afghanistan and its international donors on the implementation budget, finalized in October 2017, has been one of the main factors preventing the implementation of NAP 1325. At the same time several ministries and numerous civil society and international organizations have been working on issues relating to women, peace and security and NAP 1325. There appears to be a disconnect, however, between the requirements of fully implementing NAP 1325 and the collective efforts of the government, civil society organizations, and Afghanistan’s international donors for addressing gender inequality. The monitoring component of the NAP 1325 Monitor project has been designed to track changes affecting the implementation of NAP 1325, focusing on changes in the operating environment and decisions by the various stakeholders in programming on gender rights and equality. This report highlights these changes for the period May-August 2017 and their implications for implementing NAP 1325.
