In co-chairing the Call to Action States and Donors Working Group, DFID uses its influence to further advance the Call to Action Road Map of commitments. DFID is a member of the Global Steering Committee of the Real Time Accountability Partnership (RTAP) for protection from Gender Based Violence in emergencies which puts Call to Action commitments into practise. We have integrated Call to Action commitments on preventing violence against women and girls into our humanitarian funding mechanisms, core funding to multilateral agencies as well as bilateral funding to international NGOs through the Rapid Response Facility (RRF).
