UN Women Call for Proposals: Impact Evaluation of Strengthening Peaceful Villages Programme in Kiribati

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 22 January 2018

UN Women is currently seeking proposals for its “Impact Evaluation of Strengthening Peaceful Villages Programme in Kiribati”.

The primary aim of the impact evaluation is to assess the effectiveness of the SPV programme in reducing rates of intimate partner violence in the target population, and to identify key lessons for what works to adapt the SASA! intervention framework to the Pacific context. The secondary aims of the impact evaluation are to assess the effect of the SPV programme on community-level attitudes around IPV, women’s ability to negotiate sex within marriage, and community beliefs on family dynamics and parenting practices.

Thematic Areas

  • Ending Violence against Women (EVAW);

  • Assess the impact of the SPV programme on the following outcomes:
    • Rates of men’s perpetration and women’s experiences of physical and sexual IPV

    • Women’s ability to negotiate sex within marriage
    • Community response to women’s disclosure of IPV
    • Community beliefs around family dynamics and parenting practices
  • Investigate the individual- and community-level processes and pathways through which norms around violence against women change over time; and
