The work of the Team of Experts seeks to support and complement the work of the UN in its mission to provide security, foster development, protect human rights and support peacebuilding initiatives. The Team’s interventions seek to identify gaps and challenges faced by national authorities and institutions in responding to conflict related sexual violence and its recurrence by providing expert strategic, technical and programmatic guidance and action plans to address them. The Team focuses on strengthening national capacity and ensuring that its interventions build on and complement existing partners’ and governments’ initiatives on the ground.
