Resilience in Action: Lessons learned from the Joint Programme during the COVID-19 crisis
With limited research and documentation on the impact of humanitarian crises on female genital mutilation, the UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Programme on the Elimination of Female Genital Mutilation: Accelerating Change developed this brief to document lessons learned during the COVID-19 crisis. Drawing on rapid assessments, surveys, and consultations with country and regional offices, the brief presents Joint Programme strategies for adapting interventions to ensure business continuity in the face of the pandemic, and captures learning that will inform the programme’s future strategic planning. The brief is intended for staff, partners, and stakeholders working towards the elimination of female genital mutilation.
