Call for Proposals for Innovations in Preventing Gender-Based Violence | Diplomacy Opportunities

The World Bank Group and Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI) announced a new open call for awards recognizing promising innovations aimed at preventing gender-based violence. SVRI and the World Bank Group will disburse more than US$1 million to advance evidence-based interventions to prevent gender-based violence (GBV) in low- and middle-income countries. An expert panel will select winners engaged in research, interventions, or other activities related to GBV prevention based on overall merit, research/project design and methods, significance, project manager/team, and ethical considerations.

In April 2017, the Bank Group and SVRI awarded 10 teams from around the world a total of US$1.14 million. The winners, chosen from more than 200 submissions by research institutions, NGOs, and aid and other organizations, were from Jordan, Egypt, Peru, Solomon Islands, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Pakistan, Swaziland, Uganda and Dollo Ado Refugee Camp in Ethiopia.
