Development Marketplace: Innovations to Address Gender-Based Violence

 

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates 35% of women worldwide have experienced physical or sexual partner violence or non-partner sexual violence, roughly 938 million women. The costs of gender-based violence (GBV) are substantial. Violence against women and girls impedes their full participation in society, limits access to education and economic participation, and hinders efforts to achieve gender equality broadly. 

The World Bank Group and the Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI) have partnered to address this global pandemic by launching the Development Marketplace to Address Gender-Based Violence. The Development Marketplace awards teams from around the world with funds to support evidence-based research, interventions, and other activities related to GBV prevention and response.

The Awards, first launched four years ago, honor GBV victims and survivors, and are held in memory of Hannah Graham, daughter of longtime World Bank Group employee John Graham. Listen to an interview with John Graham. The winning teams receive up to US$100,000 each.

In July 2019, the World Bank Group and Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI) opened a call for proposals for the Development Marketplace: Innovations to Address Gender-Based Violence aimed at addressing gender-based violence in low- and middle-income countries.  

An expert panel will select winners engaged in research, interventions, or other activities related to GBV prevention and response based on overall merit, research/project design and methods, significance, project manager/team, and ethical considerations.

All applications must be submitted via the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC) Awards online system, and must reach us by midnight (South African time) on September 13, 2019.
