Online stakeholder dialogue on “Preventing and responding to female genital mutilation in emergency and humanitarian contexts”

This international stakeholder dialogue is organized by AIDOS, GAMS Belgium and the END FGM European Network. It is held in the frame of the project “Building bridges between Africa and Europe to tackle FGM”, supported by the UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Programme on the Elimination of Female Genital Mutilation.

The dialogue gathers stakeholders from the public, private and CSO sector, in Africa, Europe and beyond, working towards the elimination of Female Genital Mutilation. A series of 3 meetings of 2 hours are organized during the months of October and November, preceding the annual meeting of the Donors Working Group on Female Genital Mutilation (16-17th of November).

What it is about?

The theme chosen for the meeting is “Preventing and Responding to Female Genital Mutilation in Emergency and Humanitarian Contexts”. The dialogue will gather stakeholders from the public, private and CSO sector, in Africa, Europe and beyond, working towards the elimination of Female Genital Mutilation.

The aim is to provide a concrete set of recommendations for donors and key actors in the field.  The conclusions and recommendations will be presented during a final webinar organised back to back with the Donors Working Group on Female Genital Mutilation meeting (16-17th of November). In order to gather these recommendations, two working groups will hold a series of 3 meetings of about 2 hours each on two sub-themes:

  • WG 1: Female Genital Mutilation awareness-raising, prevention and communication in emergency and humanitarian contexts
  • WG 2: Provision of services for Female Genital Mutilation survivors in emergency and humanitarian contexts

The working group meetings are expected to be held once every second week, starting the week 5/9th of October.
