UNHCR entrusts Lattanzio KIBS with the independent evaluation of the approach to preventing, mitigating and responding to Gender Based Violence

UNHCR's first efforts to address sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) date back to 1991, followed by the formulation of the UNHCR SGBV Strategy 2011-2016. As part of a 2017 internal review, critical gaps were identified with respect to the organization’s capacity to achieve its objectives, leading to the development of a draft Global Plan of Action (PoA) for Gender-Based Violence (GBV) mainstreaming, which subsequently provided the basis for Policy 2020 on GBV prevention, risk mitigation and response. Despite significant efforts to consolidate progress, UNHCR's Strategic Directions 2022-2026 recognizes that progress remains uneven and challenges persist.

The specific contribution includes the definition of the evaluation framework and methodology, country case studies, data collection and analysis, surveys and interviews, conclusions and recommendations, presentation of findings and drafting of the final evaluation report.

Project Impact 

Lattanzio KIBS' intervention examines UNHCR's approach in terms of prevention, risk mitigation and response to gender-based violence against refugee populations. In doing so, the evaluation contributes new ideas, highlights good practices and suggests areas of work to prioritize and vice versa.
