Description and results


This project aims to strengthen Bangladesh’s capacity to both reduce actual violence against women and girls and the widespread acceptance of violence against women in Bangladesh. It provides women with tools to improve their own safety, in public, at home, and at work and at the same time it works with public and private institutions to implement policies to prevent violence against women. The project collaborates with families and communities to create more gender equitable roles and relations inside households. It also supports and reinforces Bangladesh’s own policies and regulations concerning violence against women and generates knowledge and capacity that contribute to more effective prevention of gender-based violence by government and civil society.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) national and local laws and policies to prevent violence against women are strengthened, if needed, and implemented; (2) favourable social norms, attitudes and behaviours are promoted to prevent violence against women and enhance women’s economic empowerment; and (3) policy and programming is increasingly informed by an expanded knowledge base on effective approaches to prevent violence against women.
