Gulu District Local Government is committed to the implementation of the United Nation Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325, 1820 and Goma Declaration, instruments ratified by our country Uganda. The district has developed this tool as a mechanism to address GBV, strengthening participation of women in peace and security initiatives as a means to promote peace in the district. The action plan is meant to address specific gender issues within Gulu district. It is supposed to implement national, regional, global policy and legal frameworks to which Uganda is a party under decentralisation. The indicators of the action plan have several factors including; availability of funds, information and gender disaggregated data as well as coordination and harmonisation among different stakeholders for effective implementation. The action plan will serve as a guide to all actors implementing action on UNSCR 1325 and 1820 and GD in Gulu District for the period 2016/2017- 20120/2021. It is a multi sectoral framework to a holistic approach in addressing GBV prevention and response by all stakeholders. The action plan is a roadmap for stakeholders and duty bearers to identify specific actions in their areas of mandate and take pre requisite measures within the spirit and context of the action plan. It is also a tool to tap potential opportunities to address sexual and gender base violence on women and girls committed with impunity.
