Description and results


This project expands the International Committee of the Red Cross’s (ICRC) capacity to prevent and reduce sexual violence in five countries where serious risks of sexual and gender-based violence persist. With the support of DFATD and other donors, ICRC is: (1) strengthening emergency preparedness and operational responses to sexual violence, including through specific training and deployment of specialists; (2) promoting international humanitarian law among all parties to a conflict to prevent and reduce sexual violence; (3) working with national Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to increase awareness of sexual violence and integrate prevention measures into their programming; and (4) working with governments to increase the prosecution of violators by strengthening national laws and policies.

Expected results

The expected immediate outcomes for this project include: (1) improved capacity to provide humanitarian assistance to those affected by sexual violence, and (2) improved capacity to prevent sexual violence. The expected intermediate outcome is reduced vulnerability of crisis-affected people, especially women and children.
