GDLab will fund rigorous research studies that:

  • document the scope, risk factors, and costs of gender-based violence against women, children, and adolescents;
  • document the State’s capacity and the challenges facing institutions engaged in preventing, responding to, providing support in the event of, and eradicating gender-based violence against women, children, and adolescents, or;
  • evaluate innovative interventions to prevent and respond to gender-based violence against women, children, and adolescents.

 

Proposals that analyze one or more of the 26 IDB borrowing member countries will be considered. The proposals must apply rigorous quantitative methods. Research proposals that include qualitative analysis will be considered only to the extent that they serve as input for the implementation of quantitative studies. Proposals for rigorous quantitative studies that generate actionable public policy recommendations are especially welcome.
