Gender Guidance for the Humanitarian Program Cycle 2018-2020
Delivering humanitarian response that meets the needs of women, girls, boys and men remains a priority for all UN Agencies and their partners. This guidance provides a checklist of essential actions for ensuring equitable participation and fair distribution of humanitarian action at each stage of the Humanitarian Program Cycle (HPC).
Attention to gender in humanitarian action is vital because crises have different impacts on different groups. Women, girls, boys and men all have different experiences, needs, abilities and priorities in a crisis.
