Sharif, Ms NK to ask the Minister in The Presidency for Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities
How does the Inter-Ministerial Committee play a key facilitating role and at the same time do oversight on the facilitation and implementation of the National Council for Gender-based Violence and Femicide as well as the National Strategic Plan for Gender-based Violence and Femicide?
The Inter-Ministerial Committee (IMC) is playing a key role by;
Providing strategic guidance, leadership and engagement with the key stakeholders with regard to the establishment of the National Council; and
Monitoring progress made on the implementation of the NSP and enforces accountability and compliance with reporting across all government departments. The IMC Chairperson ensures that the Department receives updated weekly reports that are sent to the President on the implementation of the GBVF-NSP.
