United Nations Action Against Sexual Violence in Conflict (UN Action) was created in March 2007, in recognition of the importance of system-wide coordination, both in headquarters and at the country level, for the effectiveness of efforts to prevent and address conflict-related sexual violence.

UN Action is a network of 13 entities working to improve system-wide coherence and accountability and to support country-based efforts in prevention and response to the needs of survivors of conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV). The work of UN Action is governed by a Steering Committee consisting of Principals from the 13 UN entities, chaired by the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict (SRSG-SVC), and supported by a Secretariat (which reports to the SRSG and sits administratively within her Office). UN Action is guided by a biennial Strategic Framework, the day-to-day leadership of the UN Action Focal Points, and funded in part by a Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF), which is governed by a Resources Management Committee.

Called for by the Steering Committee of the UN Action Network, the purpose of this Review is to examine the progress made since the establishment of UN Action in 2007, take stock of achievements, lessons learned, good practices and challenges, and make recommendations for future strategic directions and priorities of UN Action Network. The findings of the review will be used by the UN Action Network to inform its future work and priorities.


Review’s Objectives

The overall objective of the Review is to take stock of UN Action’s achievements and examine past and current challenges and opportunities faced in its action against conflict-related sexual violence.  The Review will also examine the functions, objectives, and structure of UN Action and its relations with other relevant parts of the UN system, as well as with governments and international and local non-governmental organizations (NGOs). It will be based on OECD-DAC criteria, in particular relevance, efficiency, effectiveness (including timeliness), impact and sustainability.

The Review is expected to make forward-looking recommendations for the strategic direction of UN Action for the next 5 years, and specifically towards improving the UN System’s coherence, flexibility to address emerging concerns, information-sharing, communication and role in preventing and responding to CRSV.
