This activity supports the Government of Mozambique in using RBF to quell gender-based violence (GBV) and establishing a response mechanism.

The activities include:

1) identification of entry points of RBF for GBV at the local level;

2) preparation of case studies focused on key provinces with higher levels of GBV and/or where the World Bank currently has a larger portfolio; and

3) development of a toolkit describing how to operationalize RBF for GBVprevention programs.




Active. Closing in June.2020. This activity is contributing to a larger analytical initiative on gender and social inclusion (P171332) that supports the Government of Mozambique in promoting prevention of and response to gender-based violence at the local level. A consultant specializing in RBF was hired this reporting period to undertake a feasibility study identifying potential entry points for using RBF in local GBV operations in Mozambique. The deliverables will take place in the next reporting period.
