Gender-Based Violence Area of Responsibility
The Gender-Based Violence Area of Responsibility (GBV AoR) is the global level forum for coordinating prevention and response to GBV in humanitarian settings. The group brings together NGOs, UN agencies, academics and others under the shared objectives of ensuring more predictable, accountable and effective approaches to GBV prevention and response. Established in 2008, the GBV AoR is one of five functional components of the Global Protection Cluster, known as “areas of responsibility”. The GBV AoR is co-led at the global level by UNFPA and UNICEF.
