What Works To Prevent Violence Against Women And Girls In Conflict And Humanitarian Crises: Contributions To The Field

The What Works programme is not alone in investing time and resources in researching and prioritising prevention and response to gender-based violence (GBV) in emergencies and fits into a larger, global drive to create change for affected populations, particularly women and girls. The Call to Action on Protection from GBV in Emergencies is a global appeal to diverse stakeholders to make specific commitments to contribute towards transforming the way GBV is addressed in the humanitarian space.
