To maximize global reach, activities should involve multiple locations and, when possible, multiple partners.
1) Seek to build the capacity of NGO and implementing partners to prevent and respond to GBV with worldwide application and/or implications; and/or
2) Involve research, assessments or external evaluations (prospective or retrospective), that could inform and strengthen PRM and/or the international community´s policy and programming for GBV prevention and response.
