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 2015, inspired the GBV Indicators project that aims to establish comprehensive indicators on the extent, response, support and prevention initiatives.

By April 2012 Gender Links (GL) in partnership with government and local civil society partners conducted this research
in Botswana, Mauritius and South African Provinces of Gauteng, Western Cape and Kwazulu Natal. The research has provided evidence for the adoption and strengthening of National Action Plans to End Gender Violence (NAP) in the three countries. As GL cascades the indicators to other countries, the plan is to conduct the research at local level with the Centres of Excellence (COE’s) that we are working with and to aggregate these results into a national survey.
