Guidelines for Integrating Gender-Based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Action
The Guidelines for Integrating Gender-Based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Action were developed to assist humanitarian actors and communities affected by armed conflict, natural disasters and other humanitarian emergencies to coordinate, implement, monitor and evaluate essential action for the prevention and mitigation of gender based violence (GBV) across all sectors of humanitarian action.
The guidelines goals are:
- 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;
- 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;
- To aid recovery of communities and societies by supporting local and national capacity to create lasting solutions to the problem of GBV
