European Commission sheds light on Gender-based violence in emergencies
June 25, 2018
The European Commission is organising an event on ‘Preventing and responding to Gender-Based Violence in Emergencies: challenges and opportunities’ on 27 June in Brussels, Belgium.
This public event aims to raise awareness on gender-based violence (GBV) in emergencies, highlight challenges and opportunities in responding to GBV, and disseminate information on the Call to Action on Protection from Gender-Based Violence in Emergencies. The EU, through the European Commission’s Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO), took over the leadership of the Call to Action in June 2017.
The event takes place in the margins of the annual Call to Action Partners Meeting 27-29 June 2018, which is a closed meeting.
