The Legal Framework Analysis for Mandatory Reporting on GBV in Moldova is part of the
Gender-Based Violence Sub-Working Group (GBV SWG) Technical Guidance on the Prevention
and Response to GBV in Humanitarian Settings, developed by the members of the GBV Sub-
The Technical Guidance Document aims at supporting GBV and other humanitarian actors to
coordinate and implement safe and accessible GBV response, risk mitigation and prevention
interventions, in the framework of the response to refugees from Ukraine in Moldova.
The need for this analysis emerged from several discussions and interest from members of
the GBV SWG, to create a better understanding of the legal framework related to GBV,
especially mandatory reporting requirements and procedures.
On August 9, 2022, a Legal Analysis Team under the GBV SWG was established and tasked to
complete the analysis on behalf of the members of the GBV SWG. The analysis team included
representatives from UNFPA, UNHCR, ActionAid, Intersos, UN Women and UNICEF and was
facilitated by UNFPA.
The content of the analysis was developed and discussed in two working sessions bringing the
members of the Legal Analysis Team and on September 8, 2022, the document was presented,
discussed and approved by the Legal Analysis Team.
Later, on September 22 and during a dedicated workshop to roll out the Technical Guidance on
the Prevention and Response to GBV in Humanitarian Settings the analysis was presented to
the wider GBV SWG members and was approved to be included in the Technical Guidance
