UNFPA Request for Proposals: Developing and Strengthening GBV/DV Prevention Activities by CSOs in Mongolia

Deadline: 29 May 2017

The Mongolia Country Office of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), an international development agency, is currently inviting proposals for its “Subcontracting Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to Develop and Strengthen Gender-Based Violence and Domestic Violence (GBV/DV) Prevention Activities”.

Recent advances in the legal and political environment, including the approval of the Law to Combat Domestic Violence (LCDV) in December 2016, as well as the criminalization of the domestic violence, reflect national commitment to end DV and a strong will to confront this important, but often under-recognized, social phenomena. In this respect, UNFPA started the implementation of the project on Combating Gender-based Violence in Mongolia (GBV project), co-financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), the Government of Mongolia, and UNFPA for the period of 2016-2020.

Program Aims

  • Raising awareness on GBV/DV prevention of the general public, including men, women, boys, girls, elderly, disabled, and the LGBTQ community

  • Empowering women and girls to access support services and resources on GBV/DV
  • Providing outreach services and resources in vulnerable communities with regard to GBV/DV
  • Conducting activities engaging men and boys in preventing and ending GBV
  • Implementing activities that correspond with the recommendations from the Universal Periodic Review (UPR), the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC)

Eligibility Criteria

  • Holds legal NGO status and officially registered with the relevant authorities
  • Does not act as an intermediary body in the GBV/ DV project, but as a direct implementer of the proposal submitted
