Report of the webinar : “innovative financing to end FGM”

 This webinar was held as part of the thematic discussion “INNOVATIVE FINANCING TO END FGM” organised by the Community of Practice on FGM.  

The 16 November 2022 webinar discussion organised by the FGM COP brought together COP members with three speakers to discuss innovative financing mechanisms to end FGM. 

This webinar was an opportunity to deepen and continue the discussions that had been taking place within the group on the topic of Innovative Financing to End FGM. 

It was also an opportunity to share the experience and expertise of the 3 speakers invited to this webinar, namely: a representative of a donor organisation, a very small community-based organisation and a representative of a consortium of organisations.
