The National Mission for Empowerment of Women (NMEW) in collaboration with the Lawyers Collective Women’s Rights Initiative (LCWRI), supported by UN Women held the Sixth National Conference on implementation of PWDVA (Protection of Women of from Domestic Violence Act), 2005 on 21 January 2013.
The Sixth Monitoring and Evaluation Report titled Staying Alive: Evaluating Court Orders was released at the National Conference along with the release of the Best Practices Manual on the implementation of PWDV Act 2005 and a Resource Tool for Monitoring & Evaluation of PWDV Act 2005.
The Best Practices Manual sets out to acknowledge the exemplary efforts of some States in implementation of PWDV Act. The Resource Tool builds a normative framework which can be used by state and central nodal agencies to comply with obligations under the PWDVA. The Monitoring & Evaluation Report documents implementation of the Act and evaluates its functioning by analyzing the judgments and orders passed. It also presents the attitudes, knowledge and practice of stakeholders under the Act.
