GAPS Joint Position Paper on the World Humanitarian Summit

GAPS has published a joint position paper with the Gender and Development Network (GADN) and InterAction. In the paper, we urge stakeholders involved in the summit to ensure that gender equality and gender based violence are considered as part of discussions around reforming the international humanitarian system.
