Throughout 2016, the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) partnered with local organizations in urban humanitarian settings, for the purpose of piloting gender-based violence (GBV) activities that would be at once innovative, community-driven, and responsive to evidence on local GBV risks and effective risk mitigation strategies. Four pilots were undertaken, in Delhi, India; Beirut, Lebanon; Santo Domingo, Ecuador; and Kampala, Uganda. This initiative, supported by the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, was part of a multi-year effort to build up the much-needed evidence base on best practices for strengthening GBV prevention and response in urban contexts.
