The paper aims to support DFID advisors and programme managers to integrate VAWG as an important consideration of all urban and infrastructure programming and policy dialogue.
It is divided into 4 key parts, which are designed to work independently of each other or together as one resource document:
- Overview - short 2-pager summary of the key issues, with a table of how to address VAWG through urban and infrastructure programmes
- Section 1 - provides a brief introduction to VAWG and why it matters to urban and infrastructure programmes
- Section 2 - identifies the key risks and opportunities for each of ICED’s seven entry points, as well as during the construction phase. These sub-sections are also intended to be short stand-alone briefs to help the integration of VAWG into sectors (e.g. Energy, WASH)
- Section 3 - highlights some of the conditions for success – what is needed for a programme to be transformative. It concludes with ideas for getting started
