SVRI Supported Research

A key goal of the  SVRI is to strengthening the evidence base to improve policies and programmes to respond and prevent violence against women (VAW) and violence against children (VAC) where it intersects with VAW, with a focus in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Key actions for this goal include:

1. Support and fund innovative research on VAW and VAC in LMICs:

  • Identify and support innovative research
  • Provide technical guidance to researchers from LMICs

2. Identify, amplify, debate and disseminate new knowledge and trends in the field:

  • Refine and advance a research agenda on key gaps in knowledge and practice
  • Distil, synthesise and disseminate information on topical issues
