The Africa Share Research Agenda aims to contribute to the generation of research which is both priority-driven and carried out in such a way that it provides a sound practical and empirical basis for research, interventions, programmes, policy, and advocacy on GBV.

To support the identification of research priorities on ending GBV in Africa over the next 5-10 years, the Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI) and UN Women (through its Regional Offices in East and Southern Africa and West and Central Africa) have collaborated since 2022 to facilitate the development of an African Shared Research Agenda (ASRA) for ending gender-based violence (GBV), with a focus on East, Central, West and Southern Africa.

The ASRA is adapted from the Global Shared Research Agenda for research on VAW, which was coordinated by the SVRI and The Equality Institute and launched in 2021. The process recognizes the value of identifying priority research areas for ending GBV considering the diverse contexts in which gender-based violence manifests across the sub-regions of Africa. This considers violence against adolescents and young women, harmful practices (specifically female genital mutilation and child marriage) and in humanitarian and conflict contexts. The ASRA was co-created through a participatory and inclusive priority setting exercise that highlighted the major gaps and questions which need to be addressed for the field to make progress towards ending GBV.
