The Pandemic & Gender-Based Violence

We opened 2022 with the 15th call in our Adapting CLD Processes to COVID-19 series. This time, we talked about gender-based violence, which is something our participants had asked to discuss at the end of last year. We heard from our colleagues around the world on how the pandemic augmented gender-based violence, how organizations have addressed increases in GBV, and what strategies we have learned that can be continued?
