2.0 About the Assignment

The development and adoption of the Puntland Rape Act marked the beginning of a new phase in the fight against sexual offences in Puntland, providing by this a response to the outbreak of violence against women and children in the country.

While adopting the Puntland Rape Act has performed a crucial role in raising awareness and sensitizing civil and professional communities on SGBV, with the broader outcome of ending the widespread culture of impunity surrounding the SGBV offences.

Notwithstanding these significant achievements, a critical gap remains in the area of criminal prosecution and sentencing the SGBV related offences. The ratio of the SGBV cases reported and those sentenced remains very low.

The Manual was discussed and reviewed by key stakeholders including the national Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Women and Human Rights, as well as Judges, Prosecutors, national CSOs – service providers, and UNWomen Programme team.
