Ministry of Defence (MOD) officials meet their counterparts in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Department for International Development and non-governmental organisations on a regular basis to discuss UNSCR 1325 as well as conducting regular exchanges by email and telephone. In the last month for example, MOD officials met FCO, DFID and non-governmental organisations on 24 February, 5 March and 20 March; FCO officials on 18 March; DFID officials on 19 March and representatives from non-governmental organisations on 13 March.

The frequency of meetings is likely to increase as we approach the launch date of the UK National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security in June 2014.
