Dear Under-Secretary-General Lowcock,

The below 553 concerned agencies are calling for urgent action to make gender-based violence (GBV) a key response priority of humanitarian response plans, moving to action the commitments of the “End SGBV Conference,” the Call to Action on Protection from GBV in Emergencies, and beyond. As you have said, “the world’s humanitarian agencies do a good job in saving lives and reducing suffering among people caught up in conflict. But we do not do a good enough job for women and girls.” Our collective response to COVID-19, which is exacerbating the violence that millions of women and girls are facing in humanitarian settings, is an opportunity to correct that. However, this issue currently remains under-funded and underprioritized.

The pandemic of violence faced by women and girls The COVID-19 pandemic and the movement and contact restrictions put in place to mitigate the spread of the virus are creating the conditions for the dramatic escalation of violence against women and girls, which were already at pandemic proportions. Ongoing protection monitoring and case management data lays bare the parallel pandemic of violence against women and girls:

  • 37% of women and girls, out of a total of 250, reported feeling less safe since the COVID-19 lock down in Lebanon;

  • Venezuela reported a 65% increase in femicides in April 2020 compared to April 2019;

  • In Zimbabwe, the national GBV Hotline reported an increase of over 70% from prelockdown trends;

  • In Somalia, there was a rapid rise in reports of FGM perpetrated against girls.

What do we risk if we fail to address the violence against women and girls?

If we fail to declare GBV response services as “essential,” keep them accessible to women and girls, prioritize personal protective equipment (PPE) for GBV responders so they can safely keep working, ensure women-led and women-focused local organizations are funded directly, and ensure accountability to women and girls in the humanitarian response to COVID-19, we put lives at risk.

Beyond that immediate threat, we risk undermining years of work to empower women and girls in emergencies and the progress made for gender equality; women and girls will feel the fallout of this pandemic long after a vaccine has been developed and the world’s economies have recovered. GBV experts project that for every three months the lockdown continues, an additional 15 million women and girls could experience GBV and that an additional 13 million child marriages could take place that otherwise would not have occurred between 2020 and 2030.
Lifesaving GBV programming is notoriously underfunded, even more so than other sectors.

Analysis of the COVID-19 Global Humanitarian Response Plan (GHRP) suggests this pattern is being replicated in the COVID-19 response. In the funding requests for the May update of the GHRP, GBV programming represented less than 1% of the overall COVID-19 funding appeal; as of June 23, only 8% of this very small appeal had been funded.

What needs to happen?

We welcome that the overall language on the needs of women and girls and increased protection concerns has been significantly strengthened in the second iteration of the GHRP. To ensure commitments translate into action and the humanitarian response accounts for the safety of women and girls to the extent necessary, the undersigned organizations call on UN OCHA to strengthen the GHRP by:

1.Including a standalone specific objective on GBV1 and corresponding indicators in the monitoring framework, to ensure the protection of women and girls becomes a benchmark for the success of the overall response.

2.Making the collection and use of at least sex, age and disability disaggregated data mandatory, to inform decision making in all areas of the response; this should include disaggregating by stages of development for children and youth (ages 10-14; 15-19).
We also call on UN OCHA to operationalize rhetorical, policy and financial commitments, including those made during the “Oslo End SGBV Conference,” to ensure GBV is a key priority at field and country level including through the GHRP country annexes, as well as to capitalize on this prioritization through the Humanitarian Needs Overview/Humanitarian Response Plan (HNO/HRP) process for 2021 and increased funding levels for GBV from the Central Emergency Response Fund and Country Based Pooled Funds for 2021.
Without these steps, we as a global community cannot claim to be centering the needs of women and girls in the COVID-19 response and we jeopardize its overall success.
