The goal of this proposed programme is to enhance Iraqi women’s rights by facilitating the development of national partnerships to combat violence against women (VAW). Partnerships are targeted among government ministries, civil society, religious and community leaders, the media and local communities in order to encourage the development and implementation of a national policy framework and multi-sectoral instruments aimed at combating VAW in Iraq.  The program will be implemented at national level plus three governorates selected with the line ministries based on agreed criteria.

The programme will also strengthen the institutional capacity of the Ministry of Women Affairs and other key ministries, as well as civil society organizations (CSOs), to address the needs of VAW survivors within their programmes through protection, care and referral services. The design and implementation of the programme are also driven by UN Security Council Resolution 1325.

The programme will contribute to changing public perceptions on existing gender power relations, especially those leading to VAW, and will encourage institutional and societal ownership of strategies to combat VAW through systematic advocacy and mobilization campaigns at the national and governorate levels. Finally, the programme will contribute to strengthening government and CSO data collection efforts regarding the Convention on the Eliminations of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).

The direct programme beneficiaries are: a) Iraqi women, especially those who have been subject to VAW or are likely to suffer from VAW, b) key government ministries working in the social sector, and c) CSOs and communities where programme activities will be implemented.  The programme addresses National Development strategy (NDS)/National Development Plan(NDP) Goal (3) Enhancing Gender Equity and Strengthening Women Empowerment and ICI benchmarks: “Develop and implement legislations and institutional framework to develop social partnerships and access for women to public life and to all of society’s resources.
