The Gender Support Programme provides a strategic framework establishing linkages between governance, poverty reduction and gender equality through implementation and monitoring of national priorities in areas of political participation, economic empowerment, enabling social environment and institutional strengthening. The enabling social environment component is exploring the legal rights awareness as well as the alternative disputes resolution mechanism. Within the umbrella of enabling social environment, a DFID sponsored and MOWD approved, Social Audit on Abuse Against Women (SAAAW) provided information on the extent and form of violence afflicted on women. A series of consultations were held at the provincial level, offering recommendations for redressal. The alternate dispute resolution strategic framework takes cognizance of SAAAW findings and proposes exploring alternative options for dispute resolution to address issues on violence against women. A project has been prepared by UNDP for operationalizing Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) framework for curbing gender violence through Musalihat Anjuman. The Project is functioning in five districts of NWFP, and is now being extended to Swat and Buner districts.
