Guidelines for integrating gender-based violence interventions in humanitarian action: reducing risk, promoting resilience and aiding recovery

Source(s):  Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC)

These guidelines provide practical guidance and effective tools for humanitarians and communities affected by armed conflict, natural disasters and other humanitarian emergencies to coordinate, plan, implement, monitor and evaluate essential actions for the prevention and mitigation of gender-based violence (GBV), accross all stages of disaster and emergency management: from preparedness to recovery.

The document outlines how, in order to save lives and maximize protection, essential actions must be undertaken in a coordinated manner from the earliest stages of emergency preparedness. These actions are necessary in every humanitarian crisis and are focused on three overarching and interlinked goals described in this document: 1. To reduce risk of GBV by implementing GBV prevention and mitigation strategies across all areas of humanitarian response from pre-emergency through to recovery stages; 2. To promote resilience by strengthening national and community-based systems that prevent and mitigate GBV, and by enabling survivors and those at risk of GBV to access care and support; and 3. To aid recovery of communities and societies by supporting local and national capacity to create lasting solutions to the problem of GBV.
