In Afghanistan, the inclusion of diverse groups has influenced commitments in the latest action plan. Having learned from past efforts, the government has committed to establish a joint committee of women ministers and civil society leaders to design a five-year National Women’s Empowerment Plan (NWEP) with clear budget, monitoring, and evaluation processes. Importantly, this commitment places women at the center of designing and implementing the NWEP.
