National Action Plan for 2016-2017 on the Measures to be Implemented for Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence and Protection of Victims/Survivors

The Action Plan for 2016-2017 on the Measures to be Implemented for Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence and Protection of Victims was approved by N341 Decree of the Government of Georgia on 21 July, 2016.

The present NAP extends its scope beyond domestic violence issues and also covers other forms of violence against women, such as sexual violence and early marriages. For the first time, the DV/VAWG NAP takes into consideration the gendered nature of domestic violence and addresses the phenomenon of violence against women and girls in a holistic manner following the logic of the Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence (Istanbul Convention), signed by Georgia in 2014.

To ensure efficient implementation of the DV/VAWG NAP 2016-2017, clear cut indicators, baselines and targets have been determined on the outcome and output levels to allow for proper monitoring and evaluation of results.
