Women, Peace and Security: Norway's Strategic Plan 2011-13. 2011 Progress Report
Women, Peace and Security: Norway's Strategic Plan 2011-13. 2011 Progress Report
In January 2011, the Norwegian Government’s Action Plan for the Implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000) on Women, Peace and Security, adopted in 2006, was updated and strengthened through the launch of Women, Peace and Security: Norway’s Strategic Plan 2011-2013. The UN Security Council has adopted four new resolutions on women, peace and security (SCR 1820, 1888, 1889 and 1960), and the Norwegian framework needed to be updated. Furthermore, the action plan needed to be translated into concrete action in order to improve the reporting process and the verifiability of Norway’s implementation.

Human rights 2004/2005 - Annual Report on Norway's Efforts to Promote Human Rights
For many years Norway has provided support to the United Nations, the World Bank and the regional development banks in order to strengthen funds, programmes, activities and expertise that promote gender equality. The UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) are some examples of funds and organisations whose efforts targeting women and gender equality receive special support from Norway. From the chapter on gender equality; "Women’s assumption of positions of power and their entry into the public arena is a significant factor in the development of democracy and human rights. Women in Norway have attained a relatively strong position in political leadership, but less progress has been made as regards women’s influence and representation in business, the industry and the media."
