WERK is collaborating with UN Women on a study that focuses on financing for the ending of violence against women and girls (EVAWG) in the eastern and southern Africa region. The main purpose of the study is to explore how the linkage between development assistance dedicated to ending violence against women and girls and improved State accountability contribute to (a) evidence generation; and (b) partnerships with Governments in Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) to uphold their obligations on the rights of women and girls.
Specifically, the study seeks answers to the following four questions:
The study covers over 13 UN Women focus countries in eastern and southern Africa. Of these, a deeper dive into three countries, namely, Kenya, Uganda, and Mozambique is planned. In the remaining, a broad brush analysis will be undertaken with the aim of sketching the landscape of investments in EVAWG in the selected countries.
