This project expands the International Committee of the Red Cross’s (ICRC) capacity to prevent and reduce sexual violence in five countries where serious risks of sexual and gender-based violence persist. With the support of DFATD and other donors, ICRC is: (1) strengthening emergency preparedness and operational responses to sexual violence, including through specific training and deployment of specialists; (2) promoting international humanitarian law among all parties to a conflict to prevent and reduce sexual violence; (3) working with national Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to increase awareness of sexual violence and integrate prevention measures into their programming; and (4) working with governments to increase the prosecution of violators by strengthening national laws and policies.
