The End Violence Partnership to launch new strategy for 2022-24

With less than a decade left to fulfill the ambitious targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the End Violence Partnership is set to launch a new strategy to accelerate progress towards achieving SDG 16.2 – ending all forms of violence against children. The new strategy will build on what has been achieved through its current strategic objectives: growing demand for change, mobilizing new resources and equipping practitioners.

The launch of our new strategy is an important opportunity to build on progress, catalyse momentum, reflect on all that we have learned so far, and shape a new approach forward as the world emerges from a COVID-19 world.

Together with our partners and through the Partnership’s governing bodies, the strategic planning process for 2022-24 will consolidate and strengthen the Partnership and its ability to deliver measurable results. It will do this by providing a framework for collective, evidence-based advocacy and action to achieve a vision of a world in which every child grows up in a safe, secure and nurturing environment.

The new strategy will set an ambitious vision for the End Violence Partnership and Fund, and pave new paths for the only global platform solely focused on ending all forms of violence against children by 2030. With a robust and inclusive results framework, the new strategy will work towards a world in which every child in in every country is safe – at home, in schools, in communities and online. The principles of creating a partnership for all, promoting gender equality, emphasizing safeguarding, boosting child and youth participation, and encouraging rights-based principles will continue to guide the work of the Partnership.

The new strategy will be informed by the policy proposals developed as part of the Together to #ENDviolence global campaign and Solutions Summit Series, which aims to secure the financial and political commitments to end violence against children. More information on the new strategy and its details will be posted on our website and communication channels soon. Stay tuned!
