WOMEN, PEACE AND SECURITY

AND HUMANITARIAN ACTION

COMPACT

The WPS-HA Compact is an inter-generational, inclusive global movement which calls for the redesign of peace and security and humanitarian processes to systematically and meaningfully include women and girls – including peacebuilders, refugees, other forcibly displaced and stateless women and girls – in the decisions that impact their lives.

The Compact builds on years of work on women, peace and security and humanitarian action at the global, regional, national and local level.

Signatories are invited to take transformative action for gender equality through strengthened coordination on existing mechanisms for women peace and security and humanitarian action; improved monitoring and assessment of progress; and a focus on financing, advocacy and increased visibility.
