Description and results

Description

This project aims to prevent and address violence against women and girls in developing countries, including targeted funding for women and girls living with disabilities. The project supports the United Nations Trust Fund (UNTF) to End Violence Against Women, a global, multilateral, grant-making mechanism that supports innovative, evidence-based civil society and women-led solutions, with a focus on preventing violence against women and girls, implementing laws and policies to address and eliminate violence against them, and improving access to services for survivors. Project activities include: (1) mobilizing, delivering and effectively managing funds for initiatives that prevent and address violence against women and girls; (2) creating a platform for harvesting, analysing and disseminating useful lessons from the results of UNTF initiatives that measurably inform policy and programming on violence against women and girls; and (3) creating partnerships and mobilizing support for increased funding and commitments to end violence against women and girls.
