In November 2010, UNFPA held in New York the global consultation on “Delivering as One on Addressing Violence Against Women: From Intent to Action” with the objective of presenting lessons and share experiences from multi-stakeholder joint programming in the 10 select pilot countries under the Inter-agency Task Force on Violence against Women (of which UNFPA is lead implementing agency at the pilot country levels). The draft of the manual on lessons learned on joint programming from implementation of activities under the Inter-agency Task Force on Violence Against Women has been developed and key lessons were presented at the global consultations.

Baseline assessments were completed in Rwanda, and first drafts were completed in Fiji, Paraguay, and Kyrgyzstan. National multi-stakeholder workshops to develop joint programming frameworks were held in Jordan, Philippines, Rwanda, Fiji, and Kyrgyzstan, and joint national committees consisting of a wide range of stakeholders, responsible for coordinating and providing technical support, were formed. These workshops are instrumental in developing a multi-sectoral joint programming framework that brings together United Nations system actions in support of national efforts to address violence against women, including the development or the implementation of national action plans on violence against women. Baseline assessments, as well as national workshops to develop multi-sectoral joint programming frameworks, had been initiated or completed in all 10 countries and joint national committees had been formed. Implementation of joint programming activities, led by UNFPA, had commenced in the Philippines and Rwanda. Activities of the joint programming initiative were increasingly linked to the Secretary-General’s Campaign “UNiTE to End Violence against Women” at the national level. UNFPA is leading the implementation of the joint programming activities at the country level in the identified pilot countries under the Inter-agency Task Force on Violence against Women.
