World Humanitarian Summit – GAPS joint position paper with GADN and InterAction

This joint GAPS, Gender and Development Network (GADN) and InterAction position paper recognises that transformative change in the humanitarian system is impossible unless reforms account for gender equality and gender-based violence. Research and experience have demonstrated how the failure to address the gendered impacts of crises, including gender-based violence, is one the biggest weaknesses and recurrent gaps in the international and national responses to disasters. The position paper provides recommendations to work towards realising a transformative change in the way the humanitarian community prioritises, integrates and coordinates gender equality and gender-based violence in emergency response efforts.
