This research involved the development of a global costing tool to estimate resource requirements for selected Interventions in the United Nations Joint Programme on Essential Services for Women and Girls Subject to Violence. The guidance produced focuses on two essential services and one essential action across three sectors: 1) Initial Contact – Justice and Policing; 2) Safe Accommodation – Social Services; and 3) Creation of Formal Structure for Coordination and Governance of Coordination at local and national levels – Coordination and Governance of Coordination. Intended for government and NGO officials seeking to roll out the ESP in their communities, the guide outlines the steps involved in calculating unit costs to establish the 1) overall resources required to provide a minimum package of essential services/action and to 2) project future costs.
