Bureau of PRM: Safe from the Start Initiative to Improve Global Institutionalization and Accountability for Gender–based Violence

Deadline: 18 May 2017

Bureau of Population Refugees and Migration (PRM) is seeking applications for its program entitled “Safe from the Start Initiative to Improve Global Institutionalization and Accountability for Gender–based Violence” to reduce risk of GBV and ensure quality services for survivors through timely and effective humanitarian action.

The initiative seeks to transform the international system for humanitarian response so that the needs of women, girls, and others affected by GBV are a priority in emergencies. As such, Safe from the Start, as the U.S. government’s commitment to the Call to Action, aims to fill gaps in the Call to Action Roadmap and benefit the humanitarian system so there is enhanced accountability alongside quality GBV programming and GBV risk mitigation activities across all humanitarian efforts.

Themes

  • Accountability and Institutionalization: Key actions would focus on developing or implementing institutional policies, standards, and practices that improve accountability for GBV and/or strengthen human resource approaches to reinforce and reflect global standards and practices.
  • Quality Control and Management: Key actions include developing both general and specialized knowledge and capacity among management, staff, and local partners as well as integrating GBV within standards, tools, guidance, processes and priorities. This includes activities which promote a specific focus on women and girls as a pathway to gender equality throughout operational and programmatic responses.
  • Leadership and Coordination: Key actions would focus on strengthening GBV coordination at the global level, including leadership and effectiveness of the GBV Area of Responsibility, as well as inter-agency and inter-sectoral coordination and performance at the field level. This may include rapid response or deployments that seek to quickly and systematically institute emergency response and coordination mechanisms.
