Types of projects that may be supported under this grant include:

       Research projects that are either standalone projects or a component of a larger project that will guide efforts to effectively address or prevent VAW and VAC.

       Qualitative studies that explore the effectiveness and process of creating change with innovative VAW and VAC prevention interventions or the acceptability, impact, and process of change created by interventions that support and assist survivors of VAW and VAC.

       Projects that seek to address VAW and VAC prevention and response together or simultaneously or in one intervention with distinct elements.

       Projects that work to understand how to integrate VAW and/and or VAC programming into other sectoral work and or large infrastructure development programmes.

       Those that develop innovative methods and tools for VAW and/or VAC research.

       Those that evaluate how to effectively expand tested VAW and VAC prevention and response interventions.

       Secondary analysis of existing data that will provide insights into addressing VAW and VAC more effectively and sustainably.

       Research on violence across diverse populations in situations of vulnerability, including persons with disabilities, people living with HIV, older persons, indigenous peoples, LGBTQI, refugees, internally displaced persons and migrants.

       Research on the impact of Covid – 19 on VAW and the VAW/VAC intersections, including: conducting research and programming during times of widespread instability and anxiety; ethical and wise use of remote data collection; support services for survivors under restrictive regulatory environments; Covid-19 recovery plans and inclusion of VAW and VAC considerations.
