Background

As a trusted multilateral partner serving 177 countries and territories around the world, UNDP is uniquely positioned to help advocate for change, connect countries to the knowledge and resources they need to develop and to coordinate the efforts of the United Nations at the country level.

Gender-based violence (GBV) is a global epidemic which inhibits the fulfillment of gender equality, human rights and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs now include explicit targets addressing violence against women, violence against children, and harmful practices. Reducing violence against women and girls is a stand-alone target under SDG 5 (Gender Equality) and also will contribute to achieving other gender equality targets and many of the other SDGs, including those on education, health and poverty.

UNDP has launched a new initiative to support the achievement of the SDGs by helping countries make progress on the specific gender-based violence and related targets. UNDP’s GBV and SDGs project will pilot the integration of GBV prevention and response components into sectorial programmes and measure the results. It will to use the findings of what works and what did not to advocate for better policies and programmes to address and prevent GBV across sectors such as livelihoods, health, environmental programming, youth empowerment and social protection.
