GBV Risk Score for Financial Investments

Over the past decade, there has been tremendous progress in incorporating a safeguarding perspective to reduce the risk of gender-based violence within financial investments, reflected in the “Do No Harm” approach. While critically important, the implementation of this approach has also highlighted its limitations. Specifically, this has resulted in a compliance-led approach with limited repercussions in cases of noncompliance, investments that apply safeguards approach after the fact, and potentially, unintended consequences that penalize survivors of violence. The lens of violence prevention must be integrated into the core investment and risk processes and teams, rather than being limited to gender and compliance processes and teams.

To this end, the Criterion Institute partnered with UNICEF and Equilo to develop this GBV Risk Score methodology. The GBV Risk Score leverages Criterion’s extensive research on the complex topic of financial investments and GBV. It also builds upon Equilo’s existing gender equality scoring methodology, database, and platform to operationalize the GBV Risk Score for users. This collaborative work to develop the methodology was co-created by Criterion and Equilo with support from UNICEF. Equilo developed and maintains the platform, tool, and regularly updated database.
