Generation Equality accountability report 2023: Action Coalition on Gender-Based Violence

This publication is the first thematic report of the “Generation Equality accountability report 2023” that further investigates the progress made by the Action Coalition on Gender-Based Violence as part of Generation Equality.

As we approach the 2030 deadline, progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), notably Goal 5 on gender equality, remains distant. Gender-based violence remains one of the most pervasive violations of human rights worldwide, its prevalence exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and compounded by the intersecting crises of climate change, global conflict, and economic instability.

Launched in 2021 in Mexico City and Paris, Generation Equality is the world’s leading effort to unlock political will and accelerate investment and implementation on gender equality. It brings together organizations from every part of society—through intergenerational, multistakeholder alliances—to catalyse progress, advocate for change, and take bold actions together to deliver concrete, game-changing results for girls and women. The Action Coalition on Gender-Based Violence is providing global thought leadership, leading on collective advocacy efforts, catalysing transformational progress towards the elimination and prevention of gender-based violence by 2026.

This report, released at the start of the 16 Days of Activism campaign in 2023, presents the latest evidence on the implementation of commitments made to tackle gender-based violence. Through compelling data, the report demonstrates that stakeholders are successfully mobilizing new resources and delivering concrete results in this critical area.
