In 2015, there were seven staff working full time on the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative (PSVI). In 2016, there were four members of staff working full time. In 2017, there were three staff working full time. Currently, we have a core team of three staff working full time in London, as well as surge capacity to support specific activities. In addition, PSVI work is mainstreamed and taken forward by staff around our network of posts, who advance the PSVI as part of a broader portfolio, for example, via the UK’s National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security 2018-22, which staff in a number of missions have recently helped launch.
