UNFPA (the United Nations Population Fund) and UNICEF (the United Nations Children's Fund), on behalf of the UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Programme on Female Genital Mutilation/ Cutting (FGM/C), wish to thank the people and governments that have contributed to this work.

Specifically, we thank the governments of Finland, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom for their generous financial contributions. We also express our deep appreciation to the European Union, which joined the group of donors in 2016. And we acknowledge, with gratitude, the members of the Joint Programme’s Steering Committee for their support and technical guidance throughout 2016.

Our appreciation is extended as well to each national and local government and to civil society organizations for their collaboration in accelerating the abandonment of FGM/C through their in-depth local perspectives and for their political support, without which the achievements in this report would not have been possible.

This report was produced by the Joint Programme Global Coordination Team: Nafissatou J. Diop, Mar Jubero and Berhanu Legesse. We give sincere thanks for the support of Janet Jensen, consultant, who researched and wrote the text.
