This two-day workshop will bring together practitioners working on livelihoods programming in situations of protracted crisis response and recovery with experts on GBV. It aims to: explore the risks and types of violence women and girls may experience in recovery settings and situations of prolonged displacement; review livelihoods programming in these settings; and map promising practices for increasing women’s empowerment and GBV prevention within livelihoods programming.

The workshop is part of UNDP’s global project on Ending GBV and Achieving the SDGs which aims to reduce GBV in pilot sites by testing, costing and evaluating different types of interventions, including integrating GBV prevention and response into sectoral programmes such as livelihoods and climate change. A pilot project focused on GBV-responsive livelihoods programming will be launched in the Arab States region in 2018.
