Greetings from Urgent Action Fund Asia and Pacific! We are happy to inform you that UAF A&P was launched on October 24, 2017, at the Prospera International Women’s Fund Biennial Conference in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
The Urgent Action Fund for Women's Human Rights Asia and Pacific (UAF A&P) Rapid Response Grants (RRGs) were established to provide protection and support to women, non-binary (e.g., lesbian, trans) human rights defenders or organisations that face
urgent risk in their advocacy to uphold women’s human rights and human rights.
Steering Towards New Feminist Horizons: The UAF A&P Strategy Plan 2021-2023
9 February 2021
When we embarked on planning for 2021 and beyond, it was in a world that did not know what lay ahead - a global COVID-19 pandemic. We hoped to work together to build a vision and roadmap as diverse and inclusive as our lived experiences to lead us into our second phase of existence - consolidation and expansion of our work. And then the pandemic unleashed itself in its full form - we moved from seeking the most comprehensive plan, to quickly adapting our needs and requirements to what would become a values guide - a vision and map that would set out our broader goals and direction, offering the flexibility and room to change course, as warranted by socio-political or pandemic changes in our regions.
