This category called for submissions from councils who have begun to institutionalise programmes and strategies for addressing gender based violence and the empowerment of women in local communities and how they work together with all stakeholders for eg. lobbying for a GBV budget in strategies and plans.

13 entries from 5 countries were received for this category and they focussed on implementing gender action plans, providing shelter to economically empower women, establishing women in local government forums, participatory budgeting and using information technology.
