The Spotlight Initiative will contribute to the elimination of domestic violence, including intimate partner violence (DV/IPV), by responding to the needs of women and girls and addressing the underlying causes of violence against women and girls, using a multi-sectoral and intersectional approach across the ecological model.
This will involve strengthening and widening partnerships and solidarity across civil society, government, media, private sector and development partners. Based on the approved design of the Spotlight Initiative in Timor-Leste, programming will be focused in Ermera, Bobonaro and Viqueque Municipalities.
The programme is aligned to the TimorLeste “National Action Plan on Gender-based violence (2017-2021) and National SDG Roadmap, particularly on SDGs 5 and 16. It will contribute to the National Strategic Development Plan and reinforce Timor-Leste’s Development Plan and reinforce Timor-Leste’s implementation of commitments under the Beijing Platform for Action, the Concluding Observations of the CEDAW Committee, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, among other international obligations.
