Addressing Violence against Women: Producing Evidence

Dec 2016
There is little evidence on the e ectiveness of interventions aimed at reducing violence against women (VAW) in Latin America and the Caribbean. In response, the IDB Gender and Diversity Division is undertaking rigorous impact evaluations -mostly using experimental methodologies- of projects designed to prevent VAW and to provide integrated services to survivors. Our goal is to identify best practices that can be replicated and scaled up.
