To prevent and address GBV, the UNDP works on dedicated actions and strategies, which are outlined in 1st section of this briefing note. UNDP Country Offices, UN sister agencies and other partners contributed to addressing GBV by ensuring that their broader interventions to cope with the COVID-19 crisis can help enhance the protective factors to prevent GBV (see section 2). This briefing also provides cross-cutting considerations to be mainstreamed across every intervention (see section 3 of the briefing note).
