Key findings from the report include:
The top three government donors on sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV)-related
projects are the US, Sweden and Norway. Yet, for most donors, funding to SGBV-related
projects is only a very small proportion of total Official Development Assistance (ODA)
The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is the top country-level recipient of funding to
Spending on SGBV-related projects in the ‘emergency response’ and ‘conflict, peace and
security’ sectors is surprisingly low.
A larger proportion of SGBV-related projects ‘mainstream’ SGBV as opposed to targeting it
Some donors are better at reporting spending to address SGBV using the OECD DAC
Gender Equality Marker (GEM) than others. There is a pressing need for better data on
international resource flows for addressing SGBV and a more standardised and systematic
approach to donor reporting.
