Driving accountability and action on gender equality to address conflicts and humanitarian crises.
The Compact on Women, Peace and Security and Humanitarian Action (WPS-HA) is working to realize a world for women and girls in conflict and crisis in which financing, participation in peace processes, economic security, leadership and agency, and protection of their human rights are all possible. But to succeed, peace and humanitarian action processes need to include their perspectives and uphold their human rights.
Since its launch at the Generation Equality Forum in 2021, the Compact has welcomed more than 180 Signatories, including countries, regional organizations, UN entities and civil society: women and youth organizations and networks, academic institutions and private sector. Together, this multistakeholder process is driving five years of transformative action for sustainable and inclusive peace through strong partnerships, improved monitoring and assessment of progress and a focus on financing and advocacy.
The WPS-HA Compact Framework provides a clear path for Member States, United Nations entities, regional organizations, private sector actors, and civil society – including women-led and youth organizations, NGOs, and academic institutions – to take concerted action on Women, Peace and Security and Humanitarian Action over the next five years.
