Call for proposals: Support Government in the establishment and strengthening of multi-sectoral coordination mechanisms on prevention and response to violence against women and girls including harmful traditional practices (VAWG/HTP) and adoption and implementation of gender-responsive policies and legislations

Submission deadline: 20 January 2022

The UN Women Ethiopia Country Office (ECO) recently launched a programme to strengthen institutional capacity and commitment of government institutions in putting in place effective coordination mechanisms and policy frameworks on prevention and response to violence against women and girls including harmful traditional practices (VAWG/HTP). The project will build on initiatives supported by UN Women thus far and ensure the desired results are achieved in terms of coordination and policy development on VAWG/HTP. The impact of the project will be to effectively mitigate, prevent, and respond to VAWG/HTP. The ECO is looking to partner with a civil society organization that has the required capacity, good reputation among government sectors, and presence in all operation areas to help implement the project.
