UN Women and UNESCO will co-host the event in partnership with the Permanent Mission of Sweden to the UN, the UN Girls Education Initiative (from UNICEF) and representatives from NGOs (Concern, Plan) to present the Global Guidance on School-Related Gender-Based Violence (SRGBV).

The launch of the SRGBV Guidance will provide a platform to mobilize key partners and donors to assert the importance of the guidance in reducing rates of gender-based violence in schools and to raise adequate resources for implementation. The event will enable wide dissemination and uptake of the global guidance to key audiences: education sectors, schools, and teachers.
