The UN Women-WHO Joint Programme on VAW Data seeks to partner with an institution or consortium of institutions in the Arab States region to develop and implement the regional capacity development initiative on VAW data, with an aim at enhancing expertise and capacity of national stakeholders in the region on the measurement of VAW in alignment with globally agreed standards and principles.

To support the achievement of the goal, there are three expected outcomes:
a. Measurement and methodologies for VAW data collection and use are strengthened and disseminated, including for national, regional and global monitoring and reporting requirements for SDG target 5.2 indicators;
b. Capacity of national institutions to collect VAW data in line with globally agreed standards is increased;
c. National data on VAW are collected, made accessible and used for advocacy, policy and programming to end violence against women and girls.

- Staff members of National Women’s Machineries with basic understanding of data and research;
- Researchers and/or students from academic institutes who have basic understanding of gender-based violence;
- Members of civil society organizations and other institutions that will be involved in VAW surveys.

> The proposal is compliant with the call for proposal’s requirement to ensure an even playing field among the competing partners;
> The organization mandate is relevant to the work to be undertaken in the TOR;
> The proposal demonstrates a sound understanding of the requirements of the TOR and indicates that the organization has the prerequisite capacity to undertake the work successfully;
