School-Related Gender-Based Violence: New Global Guidance for Prevention and Response
Time: 15 February 2017 - 08.00 EDT/ 13.00 GMT/ 14.00 CAT
This FRESH webinar will explore tools and approaches for preventing, measuring, monitoring and responding to school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV), based on evidence and country experiences.
SRGBV affects millions of children and young people, cutting across cultures, economies, peoples and practices. It constitutes a major barrier to children’s ability to learn and develop, and is correlated with lower academic achievement.
Ending school-related gender-based violence is a priority for countries wishing to achieve ambitious global goals on inclusive and quality education for all, good health and well-being and gender equality.
Published in December 2016, the Global Guidance on Addressing School-Related Gender-Based Violence aims to provide a comprehensive resource for addressing SRGBV for policymakers and practitioners. This global guidance was co-published by UNESCO and UN-Women and was developed in close collaboration with the Global Partners Working Group to End SRGBV.
