Funding Guidelines for the Response to Violence Against Women and Children
The Joint Programme proposes a strategy aimed at increasing and improving the financing and management of the State, at its different levels of government, for the care and prevention of violence against children, adolescents and women, as a step towards achieving the SDGs. The programme is based on the recognition that strengthening the services of the State protection system requires expanding and strengthening its financing and improving the efficiency of the management of the various functions involved in the institutional architecture for responding to and addressing violence against these populations.
The programme's strategy for achieving a better financial allocation has the characteristic of being comprehensive and exhaustive. It aims to work with the different state actors involved by promoting changes in the structural institutional arrangements that condition budgetary decision-making within this protection system. As a result of the programme, it is expected that agreements will be reached at the state level to provide sufficient resources and clear fiscal rules for the subnational levels, which will in turn lead to a reduction in the current vertical and horizontal imbalances in the country's financing of this problem.
