To deliver ground-breaking evidence of “what works” to prevent and respond to violence against women and girls in developing countries, including in conflict and humanitarian emergencies. This evidence will improve policies, programming and expand investment to reduce the prevalence of VAWG and increase the number of women and girls receiving quality response services in at least ten DFID priority countries. This will contribute to other UK priorities including the Foreign Secretary’s Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (Women, Peace and Security) and the UK’s Building Stability Overseas Strategy, and will inform other donors’ policies and operations and underpin international standards and targets, including achievement of the dedicated VAWG targets in the Global Goals.
By joining this multi-donor pooled fund, DFID’s will contribute to wider efforts to leverage additional funding for ending violence against women and girls including from the private sector. Working with like-minded donors increases the opportunity to support the Fund to pursue its objectives of becoming a mechanism that is more evidence-based, results-focused, and effective in channelling resources to smaller women’s rights and youth-led organisations to bring about transformative change.

The Modern Slavery Fund is the Home Office’s £33.5m official development assistance (ODA) fund to support the UK’s goal of reducing the prevalence of modern slavery in countries from which the UK sees a high number of victims. This activity started in 2016/17 and will end in 2020/21. The fund actively contributes to achieving the UN sustainable development goal target 8.7 which calls for “immediate and effective measures to eradicate modern slavery” by 2030. The fund forms part of a UK government commitment to spend £200m of ODA on tackling modern slavery. As part of the Home Office Modern Slavery Fund we are investing £3m in Vietnam, £5m in Nigeria and £2m in Albania. The Modern Slavery Fund also includes an £11m Innovation Fund, which builds the evidence base by supporting projects taking innovative approaches to tackling modern slavery.
