About The Database

This initiative emerged as a recommendation from a meeting hosted by UN WOMEN with regional Commissioners of Police and Gender Bureaus under the project “Strengthening State Accountability and Community Action for Ending Gender-Based Violence in the Caribbean.” This project focuses on strategies of increasing state actor competencies, strengthening accountability and the promotion of social and cultural change through youth-led, gender responsive social communications.
