Regular monitoring allows UN Women to provide technical assistance and ensure that programming is taking place on schedule and as specified. Moreover, partner(s) will need to implement the following activities:
- Develop Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) outlining proposed standard minimum requirements for the women’s centers (e.g. space requirements, safety and security requirements, staffing requirements, services provide to women etc.). Minimum target: 1 detailed SOP document developed.
- Establish a volunteer community-based Support Group for each location to help strengthen the link between the vulnerable women and the local community. The group should include local women leaders and relevant local government representatives and it should help monitor and support women in needs. Develop SOPs to provide clear guidance for the group’s work. Minimum target: 1 Support Group per location established, one SOP document developed;
- Support a hotline to assist victims of violence (reaching a minimum target of 150 survivors).
- Conduct relevant awareness raising related to GBV and the gendered impact of the COVID-19 crisis in the three targeted governorates. The topic will be determined in consultation with UNWOMEN and depends on the most urgent needs identified based on the evolving context (minimum target: one campaign developed and disseminated through appropriate channels).
