About Roadmaps

Or view Long Roadmaps here

Over the last three years, Criterion has worked to prove that finance can be a tool to address gender-based violence. These Roadmaps provide guidance on where we see the most significant opportunities and what needs to be done to advance those opportunities. This is not a comprehensive solution to address gender-based violence. Finance is but one tool in the broader work of ending violence. We seek to identify opportunities where engaging systems of finance can fit into the broader landscape of violence prevention and response efforts.
