Findings of the GBV Indicators Research Project in Botswana, Lesotho, Mauritius, Zimbabwe, four provinces of South Africa and four districts of Zambia.

GBV is one of the most common yet unacknowledged and serious human rights violations in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region1. The SADC Protocol on Gender and Development, which aims to halve current levels of GBV by half by 2015, inspired the GBV indicator project that aims to establish comprehensive indicators on the extent, response, support, and prevention initiatives. Gender Links (GL) in partnership with government and civil society partners conducted this research in Botswana, Lesotho, Mauritius, Zimbabwe South African Provinces of Gauteng, Western Cape, Kwazulu Natal and Limpopo as well as the Zambian districts of Kasama, Kitwe, Mansa and Mazabuka. The research has provided evidence for the strengthening of National Action Plans to End Gender Violence (NAP) in the six countries. As GL cascades the indicators to other countries, the plan is to gather enough information at provincial level to strengthen the local action plans for ending gender violence through Centre’s of Excellence (COE’s) for Gender in Local Government.
