Guidance Note: Exit Strategies in the Event of Premature and Permanent Gender Based Violence (GBV) Emergency Response Program Closure - GBV AoR Helpdesk 2022

Aug 08, 2022

The aim of this short guidance note is to provide international GBV responders with practical guidance on developing exit strategies and contingency plans. This is to ensure they are prepared should a GBV emergency response program be forced to close permanently and prematurely with little notice. This paper intends to fill a knowledge gap and create a resource that can offer up ways forward which improve sustainability and advance the localization of GBV prevention and response.
