Gender Equality and Women Peace and Security Resource Packages
The purpose of the Gender Equality and Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Resource Package is to enhance the skills and capacity of DPO personnel, as guided by the ten Security Council resolutions on WPS1 and further elaborated by the 2018 DPKO/DFS Policy on Gender Responsive United Nations Peace Operations (“Gender Policy”). The Resource Package sets out basic concepts, strategies and recommended actions that focus on broad operational themes within DPO (see Part Two) and specific functional components (see Part Three). The Gender Equality and WPS Resource Package aims to: • Equip peacekeeping personnel with relevant knowledge, skills and tools to analyse, plan, develop and implement appropriate responses that integrate gender equality and WPS; • Institutionalise a standard approach to gender-responsive delivery of mission mandates; and • Position DPO as a leader in gender-responsive peace operations, fostering innovation in advocacy and action for women and girls in peace operations.
