Reducing risk, promoting resilience and aiding recovery

The GBV Sub Cluster Rapid Assessment on the Impact of COVID-19 Outbreak on Gender-based Violence in Iraq

The ongoing protracted crisis, deep-rooted gender inequalities in social norms and traditional customary practices, limited resources as well as the lack of livelihood opportunities in conjunction with the recent COVID-19 socio-economic consequences have contributed to increasing the GBV risks and exposure to some of the pre-existing forms of GBV during the time of COVID-19 outbreak in Iraq. In order to better understand and explore the multi-layers impact of COVID-19 on GBV in Iraq, including how partners are adapting to emerging risks of GBV that may help them innovate activities, interventions strategies in order to better respond to survivors’ complex and unique needs in the COVID-19 outbreak situation, the GBV Sub-Cluster conducted Rapid Assessment in 11 governorates between April-May 2020. The assessment employed an online structured questionnaire as a primary source of data collection for quantitative and qualitative information from the GBV sub-cluster partners as well as review conducted from the existing secondary sources on GBV. Below is a summary list of the key findings and recommendations from this assessment exercise.
