Gender-based Violence

1.1 % of target population who support zero tolerance to violence and harmful practices


Baseline, midline and endline will be used to measure long-term impact on changing social norms and addressing root causes of violence.


Baseline, midline, and endline.

Start with a baseline, then measure by the end of the third year of implementation. If this is a continuing programme, and resources permit, it is good practice to measure annually

Data Source

Can be measured through focus group discussions and key informant interviews (mid line), household surveys for perceptions (baseline, endline).

How to Collect

People’s existing attitudes influence their willingness to adopt the behaviours promoted by our development interventions. This indicator therefore measures the proportion of the target population with attitudes that support zero tolerance to violence and harmful practices that are relevant to the cultural context and that are of focus to the programme. A common approach to measuring attitudes is to ask respondents the level of agreement/disagreement with a series of carefully formulated statements. The statements should cover all forms of violence of relevance to the context and programming. To enhance the robustness of this indicator, data collection should also contain some form of measurement of respondents’ intention to intervene/take action if they witness/are aware of violence/harmful practice happening. 

How to analyse

For statements of attitudes that support violence/harmful practices- divide the number of respondents who replied “somehow agree” or “strongly agree” by the total number of respondents (exclude those who did not know) and multiply by 100. This will provide the % of respondents who still harbour attitudes that support violence/harmful practices.
