Sexual Violence Research Initiative. (2022). Pretoria: SVRI.

Abstract

To strengthen the evidence – base to address VAW and VAC in low- and middle-income countries, the SVRI established the SVRI Grant in 2014. From 2016 -2020 the SVRI was joined by the World Bank Group as co-hosts of the Grant, renaming it the Development Marketplace for innovation in GBV prevention and response. In 2020, with support from our funding partners the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and the Wellspring Philanthropic Fund, a new granting mechanism was launched – Knowledge for Action to End Violence Against Women and Violence Against Children. Grants range from $40,000 to $200,000 over a maximum of 18-24 months. Research projects are selected through a rigorous peer review process. The research topics include education, parenting interventions, the intersections of VAW and VAC, cash transfers, sexual harassment and public transport, violence and mental health, technology facilitated violence against women and violence against children, violence against migrant women and migrant children, violence against women of diverse sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, the impacts of Covid-19 on domestic violence.
