Project Description:

In 2020, Zambia participated in the DCAF Measuring Opportunities for Women in Peace Operations (MOWIP) pilot program, resulting in a report that identified good practices and areas for improvement within the ZPS.

With a current strength of 20,285 officers, 29.6% of whom are women, the ZPS aims to increase the deployment of women peacekeepers from its current level of 5 (20%) as per October 31st, 2023.
