The goals of ending GBV and achieving the SDGs are mutually reinforcing. GBV impedes progress towards sustainable and equitable human development; the SDGs cannot be fully achieved without concerted efforts to end GBV.
The SDGs provide both the normative and policy framework within which to address these two-way links between GBV and development. There remains, however, a lack of evidence and guidance on how to operationalize this normative and policy framework and how to develop GBV prevention programming that is grounded in and shaped by a broader agenda for sustainable and equitable human development.
This report is the result of a collaborative project between UNDP and UNU-IIGH, in partnership with the Republic of Korea. The project, implemented in partnership with UNDP offices across a diversity of countries, produced new tools and evidence on “participatory planning and paying models” that engage diverse community stakeholders in defining their own solutions and establishing sustainable financing for local GBV action plans (in Indonesia, Peru and the Republic of Moldova) and on innovative models that integrate GBV prevention interventions into larger livelihoods or social cohesion programmes for scale and sustainability (in Bhutan, Lebanon, Iraq and Uganda).
