Project Description:

The UN and the EU are developing the Spotlight Initiative Global Platform, a virtual exchange and convening platform that would offer the combined power of a knowledge hub, a community of practice and an advocacy platform, founded in the practical experience of the Spotlight Initiative’s 25+ programmes. The Global Platform will amplify knowledge, lessons, and promising/good practices from the Initiative to inform global policy, programming, and advocacy on EVAWG, and model comprehensive programming.

The Global Platform will also connect and strengthen a coalition of key actors from the UN, EU, civil society, donors, private sector, practitioners, academia, and others, as well as create direct links between local, grassroots civil society with duty bearers, moving beyond the Initiative’s current stakeholders to engage the wider global community for increased impact on ending violence against women and girls.
