Improving information access and management:
Understanding community and women’s needs
Collecting and analyzing information about patterns of violence and their impacts is at the core of women’s peacebuilding work. It contributes to more effective conflict prevention and relief and recovery after conflict. For example, Julia Kharashvili from the IDP Women’s Association “Consent” told GNWP that “during the [Nagorno Karabakh conflict that erupted in September 2020], it was vital to be online to understand the needs of Armenian and Azerbaijani women.” Using online data collection, her organization was able to map the needs of women in each country and provide appropriate support, such as psychosocial and legal assistance.
