Local Action to End Gender-based Violence in Moldova

Local Action to End Gender-based Violence in Moldova

Jan 22, 2020

Gender-based violence (GBV) is widespread in the Republic of Moldova and has been severely underfunded at the local level. Urgent action is required through participatory local governance and inclusive partnerships that can more effectively respond to and eliminate GBV.

Chirsova’s Local GBV Action Plan translates national policies into local concerns and solutions for the first time in Moldova. This pilot project could inform further replication of successful interventions in the country and generate valuable lessons learned and best practices for participatory planning and paying at a community level.
