Capitalizing on the importance of costing VAW and the momentum that ESCWA has created in this area, ESCWA  in partnership with Westminster Foundation and the Coalition of Women MPs from Arab Countries to Combat VAW, will be holding a two-day advanced capacity development workshop on 27-28 March 2019 at the United Nations House in Beirut.

This workshop will aim to develop a better understanding among participants on the methods of costing violence against women and will focus specifically on three dimensions: (1) out of pocket cost; (2) cost of services; and (3) responsive budgeting.

It will create a platform to discuss the approach to cost VAW, and which dimension a country should focus on, which relates to several factors including availability of data. The workshop will also highlight the differences between the various costing methodologies, such as the accounting model and econometric methods; and the willingness to pay…etc.

It will target participants from seven countries, namely: Palestine; Iraq; Qatar; Kuwait; Lebanon; Jordan and Morocco. Each country will have two participants, one from the national women machinery and the other from the national statistics bureau.
