Guidance Note on Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and Sexual Exploitation, Abuse and Harassment (SEAH) for GEF and GCF Projects

Download in:





This guidance note has been developed primarily for the development and implementation of GEF and GCF projects and is being further adapted for WWF projects more broadly. It assists project teams in identifying risks of GBV and SEAH that may emerge in conservation projects. This guidance note also aims to support decision making, and to inform planning and implementation of possible mitigation measures to address GBV and SEAH risks in projects identified during project preparation and execution. More specifically, it aims to:

  • Establish basic guiding principles for effectively minimizing and mitigating any identified GBV/SEAH risks in projects.
  • Provide suggestions, recommendations, and further resources for project teams working on GBV/SEAH related to projects.
