Joint Evaluation of the UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Programme on the Abandonment of Female Genital Mutilation: Accelerating Change Phase I and II (2008–2017)


The purpose of the evaluation is to assess the extent to which, and under what circumstances, the Joint Programme has contributed to accelerating the abandonment of FGM over the last 10 years and to provide recommendations on how to accelerate change to end FGM. Information generated through this evaluation will be used to inform implementation of Phase III of the Joint Programme (2018-2021), and UNFPA and UNICEF work beyond 2021.
