This program aims to build GBV global capacity through the local development and implementation of evidence-building activities in three major components: a free, self-paced virtual course; individualized technical advising and support to humanitarian agencies seeking to conduct GBV research or improve their monitoring and evaluation systems; and direct support of humanitarian agencies to conduct their own research and bridge knowledge gaps.
Our training materials can be used to introduce a broad range of audiences and backgrounds to important concepts related to gender and health. Each training course focuses on one of five themes that complement the CORE Gender 101 agenda: Gender Integration, HIV + Sexuality, Safe Motherhood, Gender-Based Violence, and Constructive Male Engagement. The courses are designed to meet the geographic and technical needs of cooperating agencies, USAID Missions, and specific projects. Materials range from basics such as using a shared gender vocabulary and programmatic guidance, to user guides on how to conduct a gender analysis, to exercises for gender trainings. The trainings are geared to be used by anyone and with any audience, even those learning about gender for the first time!
Our popular Gender Integration Continuum framework is an important tool to assess how programs do (or do not) address gender and move them toward more gender-transformative actions. An updated User’s Guide for facilitating training on use of the continuum is available, along with other materials.
These interactive maps display the prevalence of CEFM and FGM/C in countries where these harmful practices occur. Stakeholders can use these maps to identify locations with high rates of CEFM and FGM/C—particularly “hot spots” at the national and subnational levels. This information, along with a context analysis, can help inform the implementation of programming to help reduce these harmful practices.
This report provides a summary of research-to-date on the effectiveness of the anticipatory action approach, particularly in relation to return on investment and effects at the household level. The report also includes some specific guidance on addressing GBV in anticipatory action, looking at emerging evidence, as well as providing specific recommendations for GBV coordinators, GBV specialists, and those supporting risk mitigation interventions.
This policy brief provides a series of recommendations for improving national data on violence against children and adolescents and using data and evidence to strengthen national-level violence prevention efforts. The findings and recommendations are based on the results of a global meta-analysis of factors associated with physical, sexual, and emotional violence against children in low- and middle-income countries.
This summary gathers top considerations and recommendations from IUCN’s expansive study on Gender-Based Violence and Environment Linkages: The Violence of Inequality. Published in this critical post-2020 period of environmental decision-making, and with less than a decade to meet targets of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, this summary is designed to support policymakers and implementers to address and respond to gender-based violence and environment links.
This resource provides operating units with an overview of key considerations and programming recommendations for USAID activities to make simple and effective adaptations to their COVID-19 response plus address emerging and existing gender inequality gaps.
