Estimating Resource Requirements for Responding to Violence against Women in Southeast Asia: Synthesis of Findings and Lessons
In the Asia-Pacific region, a growing number of countries are committed to ending violence against women; at least 32 countries in the region have legislation in place to address the issue, including eight out of ten ASEAN Member States. At least seven countries in the region have national action plans on violence against women. In addition, ASEAN Member States adopted an ASEAN Regional Action Plan on Ending Violence against Women in 2015.
It was undertaken by UN Women, with generous funding support of the Australian Government. It forms part of a regional programme entitled “Leveraging technical tools, evidence and community engagement to advance the implementation of laws and provision of services to women experiencing violence in Southeast Asia.”
