16 Days of Activism against GBV 
06 / 12 / 2021

Dear colleagues,

We would like to remind and encourage WASH partners and coordination platforms to engage in the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence.

As humanitarians, we all have a role to play in ending gender-based violence (GBV) before, during, and after a crisis. GBV specialist working with survivors and at-risk populations directly, but also humanitarian workers in other sectors, such as WASH, have a collective responsibility.

This year focus is on exploring the concept on shared responsibility with partners across the humanitarian spectrum, investigating the actions in planning, implementation or evaluation, to find out how we can collectively support the needs of women and girls.

We also wanted to inform you about various resources on GBV mitigation.
  • The GBV Guidelines Knowledge Hub provides tools, resources, and multi-media designed for non-GBV specialized actors, about how to mitigate GBV risks.
  • Consulting with women and girls throughout the humanitarian programme cycle is key to GBV risk mitigation in WASH programming, making programmes safer and more accessible. Please find here a tip sheet on consulting with women and girls, as part of the guidelines for integrating GBV interventions in Humanitarian Action.
  • The Thematic Area Guide on WASH and Gender-Based Violence, which is a portable tool that can provide practical guidance on preventing and mitigate gender-based violence in humanitarian settings.
Please get involved through campaigns and events at the country level - feel free to share any country-level initiative, story related to the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence directly through Twitter and social – tag us @WashClusterglob, and use these hashtags #EndGBVTogether.

Best regards,
CAST (The Cluster Advocacy and Support Team)
