The Women Peace and Security Agenda is a matter of international security; and should be included in Defence operational planning and preparedness.
- UN Secretary-General said that regarding the WPS Agenda "women’s participation should be a default, not an afterthought. But that is not the case."
- Women’s security is an indicator of national security; and sexual and gender-based violence increases during conflict.
- ADF needs to better integrate WPS considerations into planning for operations.
