Women’s Protection and Empowerment (WPE) Learning Briefs: Irish Aid Strategic Partnership
These learning briefs were created through the Women’s Protection and Empowerment (WPE) IRISH AID-IRC STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP. The purpose of the briefs are to share learning from an annual WPE forum which explores three themes of inclusion, accountability and adaptability in relation to Gender Based Violence (GBV) prevention and response programming in acute and protracted emergencies. Each year from 2014, the Strategic Partnership has promoted technical excellence through south-to-south learning. Initially the learning forum was focused in East Africa, but more countries have attended each year until in 2019 the learning forum brought together 50 WPE staff from the Middle East, Asia, the US, Europe, East, West and Central Africa, as well as global and regional hubs. In 2020, the learning forum moved online to engage WPE teams across the world during the Covid pandemic.
