Description


UNFPA is a strong advocate for gender equality and works with partners in emergencies contexts to ensure that the specific needs of women are considered in humanitarian response. During a humanitarian crisis, the incidence of violence against women and girls is amplified and they often face increased protection risks such as sexual violence, trafficking, and early and forced marriage. In response to this specific risk, UNFPA has launched an initiative that looks to improve sexual and gender-based violence prevention and response programming and inter-agency coordination. With the support of DFATD and other donors, UNFPA, in partnership with UNICEF, UNHCR, and the International Rescue Committee, is: (1) developing a standardized inter-agency training package and case management system for preventing and addressing gender-based violence in emergencies; (2) building the capacity of service providers to deliver training on survivor-centred care; and (3) providing on-site support to roll-out the Gender-Based Violence Information Management System.
