Ensuring accountability for SGBV and increased participation of women in Africa
The proposed interventions seek to strengthen the capacity of African Women’s organizations to effectively engage the African Union Organs (AUC) through evidence based strategies and policies that empirically demonstrate the economic, political and social cost of conflict on women and girls. The programme has three result areas namely:
a) The decisions for effective policy and legal response to sexual and gender based violence before during and after conflict are influenced by empirical evidence on the economic, social and political cost of conflict the three target countries
b) Survivors of conflict related sexual and gender based violence are supported to access justice through increased use of international instruments and policies on prevention and response to SGBV at continental, regional and national
c) Increased and meaningful participation of women in continental, regional and national decision making platforms on prevention, management, response and resolution before, during and after conflict.
Oxfam and National members of the Solidarity for African Women’s Rights Coalition (SOAWR) will implement the programme in the three target countries South Sudan, Egypt and Nigeria.
