Proposal for Phase III of the UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Programme on the Elimination of Female Genital Mutilation: Accelerating Change


Since 2008, UNFPA and UNICEF have been implementing the Joint Programme to Eliminate Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).

Drawing on best practices and lessons learned, Phase III will build on the Joint Programme’s momentum in galvanizing a global movement to end FGM by intensifying efforts and increasing resources to address the growing number of girls and women at risk of FGM.

The vision of the Joint Programme in Phase III is to contribute to the elimination of FGM by 2030, in line with target 5.3 of the Sustainable Development Goals, which calls for the elimination of harmful practices.
