Evidence Brief: What Works To Prevent & Respond To Violence Against Women And Girls In Conflict And Humanitarian Settings?

This brief provides a succinct overview of the existing evidence on the prevalence of VAWG and on promising and emerging practices that prevent and respond to VAWG in conflict and humanitarian settings, summarising recent systematic and literature reviews in this field. It includes information on interventions involving both refugees and internally displaced populations (IDPs) affected by conflict, as well as other groups of women and girls who have been affected by natural disasters and/or severe food insecurity. The articles also focus on several different types of violence, including non-partner sexual violence, intimate partner sexual/physical violence, and harmful practices and social norms.
