Description and results


The project aims to reduce the vulnerability of women and girls in West Bank and Gaza to all forms of violence and from the threat of such violence. Project activities include: (1) putting in place prevention initiatives that support targeted households and communities for decreasing harmful practices, attitudes and behaviors towards women and girls; (2) fostering innovative approaches to improving service providers’ capacity to provide gender-responsive services for victims and survivors of violence; and (3) building the capacity of civil society actors and human rights advocates to advocate for policy and legal frameworks for the protection of women and girls’ rights. The project is implemented by a consortium led by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) and also comprising of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) decreased harmful practices and attitudes that perpetuate and validate violence against women and girls within targeted households and communities; (2) increased access by women and girls to gender-responsive services (economic, medical, psychosocial, security, shelter) free of discrimination; and (3) strengthened institutional capacity to develop and implement legal and policy frameworks that promote and protect women’s and girls’ rights with regards to violence against women and girls.
