ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION: Building whole-of-government approaches to address gender-based violence

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought attention to another global pandemic: gender-based violence. Rates of GBV have increased around the world, often during lockdowns in which women and girls were confined with their abusers. Existing public policies and programmes often seem to have fallen short, however, demonstrating the need for governments to plan more strategically and holistically. This panel will consider how governments can adopt more whole-of-government systems and integrated approaches to GBV moving forward.
