Synopsis

Gender-based violence is pervasive around the world, in all societies, contexts and sectors. The socio-economic stresses of the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on movement have significantly increased gender-based violence risks, particularly domestic violence.

This Information Note is prepared by the IUCN Global Programme on Governance and Rights. It provides overview information for promoting awareness among environmental organisations on how gender-based violence and environment linkages can be impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak and suggested steps and resources. The note will be updated regularly, as reflected in document versions.
