UNDP has been implementing a global initiative on ‘Ending GBV and Achieving the SDGs’, funded by the Republic of Korea. The initiative is testing new approaches to reduce gender-based violence and accelerate progress towards other development goals, in seven countries: Bhutan, Indonesia, Iraq, Lebanon, Peru, Republic of Moldova and Uganda.
As part of this global initiative, UNDP has partnered with the United Nations University International Institute for Global Health (UNU-IIGH) on the project ‘Costing and Financing: Ending GBV and Achieving the SDGs’.
