In order to proceed with the launch of the 2020 COVID-19 Crisis Response Call for Proposals to address and end violence against women and girls, the UN Trust Fund intends to develop specific guidance and grants allocation criteria.

This guidance is intended to help identify the types of projects to be funded, the types of experience organizations applying need to implement these types of interventions, and criteria for supporting organizations in the process of developing their applications.

This guidance and criteria document will be presented to the UN Trust Fund’s Global Programme Advisory Committee for its review and endorsement before the launch of the UN Trust Fund’s 2020 Call for Proposals.

Development of the guidance and grants allocation criteria requires specialized technical advice from an expert/s with both an in-depth knowledge of WROs working on EVAW, and issues relevant to the situation of women and girls in the context of a crisis, specifically public health crises, pandemics and other disease outbreaks and their intersection with violence against women.
