A framework for how economic strengthening can mitigate girls’ risk of gender-based violence, outlining promising practices from both humanitarian and development contexts. 

GGuiding Principles from the Theory of Change

  1. Minimize risk of harm from interventions.
  2. The humanitarian community has an obliga­tion to protect girls’ rights and to ensure their participation.
  3. Programs should be integrated, compre­hensive and inter-sectoral.
  4. Interventions must be tailored to girls’ needs and circumstances, and to each context.
  5. Ending GBV involves tackling harmful gender-based discrimination and social norms in the community.
