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.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved access for women and girls to essential, safe and adequate multisectoral services to end violence against them; (2) increased effectiveness of legislation, policies, national action plans and accountability systems to prevent and end violence against women and girls; and (3) improved prevention of violence against women and girls through changes in behaviours, practices and attitudes.

Results achieved 

Results achieved as of December 2020 include: (1) supported 150 projects aimed at preventing and addressing violence against women and girls through grants totalling US$72.8 million awarded in 71 countries and territories, across five regions; and (2) in total, reached over 31 million people, mostly women and girls, through initiatives such as awareness raising campaigns to prevent and end violence against women and girls. The total of those reached includes 26,519 women and girl survivors of violence, 21,040 women and girls living with disabilities, 12,822 Indigenous women or women from ethnic groups, 11,747 refugee/internally displaced women and girls and 6,661 women and girls living with HIV/AIDs.
