UN Women Call for Proposals: Reducing Violence Against Women in Macedonia

Deadline: 31 October 2018

The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia (ECARO) is inviting civil society organizations (CSOs) to submit proposals to develop and implement a Strategic Communication Programme for Achieving Specific Behavioural Results with regard to reducing Violence against Women (VAW) in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia to contribute to the implementation of the Programme “Ending Discrimination and Violence against Women: Implementing Norms, Changing Minds”.

Scope of the Project

Thorough and extensive research has been conducted on the multiple factors that influence the construction and evolution of gender stereotypes. However, more information is needed on the specific factors, including norms and attitudes at community and individual levels that perpetuate gender-discriminatory stereotypes and contribute to violence against women. The relationship between attitudes, social norms, and behaviour is complex.

Methodology and Tools

The COMBI Plan to be developed with technical assistance from UN Women should include:

  • Introduction and Background
  • Statement of Overall Objective
  • Statement of Specific Behavioural Objective(s)
  • Summary of Market/Formative Research which offers insights into the factors which influence VAW behaviour and which would also influence the reduction of VAW
  • Presentation of a Communication Strategy for achieving specific behavioural outcomes re reducing VAW.
  • Presentation of a detailed Implementation Action Plan, with a schedule of activities.
  • Presentation of how the COMBI Plan will be managed
  • Presentation of a management/monitoring plan.
  • Presentation of a Behavioural Impact Evaluation Plan
  • Budget
