ENGAGEMENT OF CONSULTANT FOR THE MAPPING SERVICES FOR GENDER BASED VIOLENCE (GBV) AND DEVELOPMENT OF REFERRAL DIRECTORY AND PROTOCOLS
ISSUED DATE: THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019
There is growing recognition of the prevalence of various forms of Gender-Based Violence globally. For instance, 35% of women worldwide have experienced non-partner sexual violence or physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence (IPV) (WHO 2013) which is manifestations of Gender-Based Violence (GBV). While major civil works such as those being financed under IUEMP are not responsible in entirety for cases of GBV, they can exacerbate the risk of GBV in both public and private spaces by a range of project-connected perpetrators and factors in number ways, for example.
a) Influx of workers may increase the demand for sex work-even increase the risk for trafficking of women for the purposes of sex work-or the risk of forced early marriage in a community where marriage to an employed man is seen as the best livelihood strategy for an adolescent girl.
b) Furthermore, higher wages for workers in a project community can lead to an increase in transactional sex. The risk of incidents of sex between laborers and minors, even when it is not transactional, can also increase.
c) Project activities create changes in the communities and can cause shifts in power dynamics between community members and within households. Hence, abusive behavior can occur only between project related staff and those living in and around the project site, but also within the homes of those affected by the project
d) When land acquisition occurs for civil works women may be extremely vulnerable to Gender Based Violence GBV).
