This project seeks to map and critically analyse evidence of good practice in prevention and response to gender-based violence (GBV) in humanitarian contexts which can support humanitarian practitioners and policy makers to improve the quality of GBV programming in the field.  The literature review will also inform the Humanitarian Practice Network’s (HPN) and DFID’s understanding of the scope and quality of the current evidence base of good practice in GBV prevention and response and recommend areas where additional research and evidence is needed. 

The review will be made available to the community of GBV experts and practitioners. It will also feed into the development of an HPN network paper which will further analyse and discuss conceptual issues and evidence gaps identified in the review.
