Gender-based violence (GBV) is one of the greatest social, economic and development challenges facing the world today. At least one-third of women across the globe experience GBV and the health and development consequences that this violence brings. The costs of violence are substantial. Violence against women and girls impedes full participation in society, limits access to education, labor force participation and ownership of assets, to name a few. For intimate partner violence alone, selected country estimates suggest that out-ofpocket expenditures, lost income and reduced productivity can amount to up to 4% of GDPmore than what many governments spend on primary education.

The SVRI and the World Bank Group are requesting proposals for research and interventions or related activities that will contribute to the prevention of gender-based violence in low and middle income countries. Due to high levels of competition and limited funds available, the quality of the proposal submitted will determine success in your funding application. Applications from legally constituted institutions, or organizations that have existing capacity, with high quality proposals are most likely to be successful in this category.
