The Methodology for the Evaluation of Opportunities for Women in Peacekeeping Operations (MOWIP) for the Zambia Police Service examines the capacity of the Zambia Police to deploy women in United Nations peace operations and ensure women’s meaningful participation in them. The report outlines good practices that are already being implemented by the Zambia Police Service, as well as contains a set of recommendations to overcome the identified barriers.
The evaluation was carried out using the MOWIP methodology, developed in collaboration with Cornell University and professionals from eight partner countries, including Zambia. The assessment was implemented in collaboration with the Southern Africa Centre for Constructive Resolution of Disputes (SACCORD). It was performed with financial support from Global Affairs Canada and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, within the framework of the Elsie Initiative for Women in Peacekeeping Operations, launched by Canada in 2017.

The MOWIP Methodology is the standard methodology for assessments required for applications to the Elsie Initiative Fund. All data collection tools, templates, and explainers are available on the MOWIP Toolkit web page.
Troop and police contributing countries seeking support to implement the MOWIP Methodology in their own armed forces, police or gendarmerie can contact DCAF's MOWIP Helpdesk for further guidance and information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
