Recommendation: RECOMMENDATION 1 (FOR UN WOMEN): Support the revitalization and capacity building of the National Coordinating Body on Prevention and Response to Violence Against Women and Girls, including assistance in articulating the Body’s role and accountabilities in coordinating national policies and plans for addressing all forms VAWG, and its human and financial resourcing requirements. Provide technical assistance towards the development of standards that reflect context appropriate and globally recognized approaches to preventing and responding VAWG, and a robust monitoring framework and system.
Management Response: The recommendation is fully accepted, and UN Women will continue providing technical and financial support to revitalize the National Coordinating Body (NCB) on the prevention and response to VAWG. UN Women will support the strengthening of this body in selected regions and at the federal level by providing trainings on the Essential Services Package for survivors of VAWG, support its adopt and integration of global standards and guidelines on essential services and follow up on the implementation of essential services.

1. Provide technical and financial support to FOAG to revitalize and strengthen the National Coordinating Body on Prevention and Response to Violence Against Women and Girls, both at federal and regional levels UN Women in collaboration with FOGA 2019/06 Overdue-Initiated Following the signing of the MOU in 2019, UN Women participated in the NCB meetings where the commitment from UN Women side was shared with the Attorney General, Ato Berhanu. Following that, to revitalize the NCB, UN Women organized the essential service package training for members of the NCB. Moreover, UN Women has planned to roll out the NCB in regions where UN Women has program implementation.
2. Provide financial and technical support to the national coordinating Body in implementing essential services and set up an agreed upon monitoring framework UN Women in collaboration with FOGA 2019/12 Overdue-Not Initiated
3. Support NCB, through FOGA, in establishing and running One Stop centers in Tigray and Amhara regions UN Women in collaboration with FOGA 2019/12 Overdue-Not Initiated
Recommendation: RECOMMENDATION 2 (FOR UN WOMEN) In collaboration with UN sister agencies, take a leadership role in undertaking a joint mapping and analysis process to detail the UN’s specific work on EVAWG in Ethiopia, at all levels. Consider establishing an informal working group at programme and practitioner level to ensure ongoing programming coherence and synergy.
Management Response: This recommendation is partially accepted. It is noted that there has been limited coordination on EVAWG among UN agencies which might have created a risk of duplication. UN Women as a mandated agency to coordinate and lead UN efforts on GEWE, has recently been assigned to chair UNDAF’s Result sub-group on women (part of the Equality and Empowerment UNDAF group). Through this result sub-group, UN Women will attempt to ensure coordination among UN agencies and coherence in their programmes to eliminate EVAWG in Ethiopia. On the other hand, establishing and leading an informal UN working group would be a duplication of the UNDAF groups coordination efforts, the Protection cluster and GBV sub-cluster in addition to the Ethiopia Network of Women’s Shelters that brings together all organizations working on shelters in Ethiopia including prevention and advocacy intervention.

UN Women s collaborated with UNFPA and Packard foundation to support the undertaking of additional analysis of 2016 EDHS VAW findings and their correlation with other variables. The draft analysis is ready for validation, the validated findings will assist government and stakeholders in planning and implementing appropriate policy initiatives and programs to mitigate and eventually eliminate VAW.

Management Response: Following the momentum that was created in 2017, the Ethiopian Network of Women’s Shelters (ENWS) and UN Women acknowledges the need to have an overall strategy (2018-2020) to support the network’s agenda. In June 2018, UN Women supported the ENWS to develop an extensive five-year strategic plan (2018-2022) and detail implementation and operational mechanisms. The strategic plan is based on the assessment of shelters “Shelters for women and girls who are survivors of violence in Ethiopia”, which was commissioned by UN Women, UN Global essential service package and the context of Ethiopia. The developed strategic plan focuses on seven intervention areas: referral and coordination, enhancing rehabilitation and reintegration services, developing national SOPs for shelters, capacity building for first line service providers, coordinated prevention initiatives on violence against women and girls, national policy intervention and communication and outreach.
