A PEEK INSIDE THIS EDITION:

  • DFID’s ICED facility has launched a Briefing Paper on Violence against Women and Girls, Infrastructure and Cities. It provides support to DFID advisors to integrate VAWG as an important consideration of all urban programming. The paper was co-written by Erika Fraser, Laura MacLean (SDDirect staff members) and Kalpana Viswanath.
  • New study funded by DFID explored the relationship between Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE) and VAWG in Myanmar, Nepal and Pakistan.
  • A new Resource Kit on gender-based violence in global supply chains has been developed by the International Labour Organization.
  • Action Aid’s new report ‘Double Jeopardy’ examines the twin injustices of women’s economic inequality and VAWG, based on participatory research in Uganda, Cambodia, India and Brazil.
