The Human Rights and Democracy Programme (HRDP) is the FCO’s dedicated fund supporting human rights and democracy work overseas. The Programme aims to make a difference to people’s lives, helping to build the capacity of governments and civil society to promote and protect human rights.
The UK promotes gender equality and tackles violence against women and girls as a matter of principle. The Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative (PSVI) is concerned with the impact sexual violence in conflict can have on prospects for long term peace and stability. It is framed by and supports the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolutions relating to Women, Peace and Security.
