What works in addressing violence against women and girls? Lessons from the Typhoon Haiyan response

Source(s):  Department for International Development (DFID)

This report lays out key recommendations on how to prevent and respond to violence against women and girls in disasters, which include making protection measures a part of disaster preparedness, putting greater effort into making protection a ‘mainstream’ issue across all parts of a humanitarian response and reaching out to local organisations to support efforts.

Violence against women and girls can escalate in the aftermath of humanitarian emergencies. The report is the outcome of a meeting convened by Department for International Development (DFID) of organisations who were part of the earliest response to the Typhoon Haiyan disaster in the Philippines in November 2013 to better understand how to prevent and respond to violence against women and girls in disasters. The meeting discussed the experience of these practitioners in putting protection of women and girls at the centre of the humanitarian response.
