Women In Displacement
The Women in Displacement online platform was created as a resource to help CCCM partners understand the overall approach and methodology of the Women’s Participation Project and introduce the participatory data collection tools that were developed to facilitate engagement with displaced women, girls, boys and men as well as at-risk groups, along with training modules that support the usage of the tools. The platform also acts as a space for sharing lessons learnt and best practices around women’s participation in displacement.
The Norwegian Refugee Council is an independent humanitarian organization helping people forced to flee. We work in crises in more than 30 countries, where we help save lives and rebuild futures.
We deliver high-quality aid where needs are greatest. When we started our relief efforts after World War II, humanitarian needs were critical. They still are – and we’re still there, protecting people forced to flee and supporting them as they build a new future. Today, we work in both new and protracted crises across more than 30 countries, where we provide camp management, food assistance, clean water, shelter, legal aid, and education.
We stand up for people forced to flee. NRC is a determined advocate for displaced people. When we witness injustices, we alert the world. We promote and defend displaced people's rights and dignity in local communities, with national governments and in the international arena. NRC’s Internal
Displacement Monitoring Centre in Geneva is a global leader in monitoring, reporting on and advocating for people displaced within their own country.
We respond quickly to emergencies. NRC's global provider of expertise, NORCAP, the world’s most used, boasts around 1,000 experts from all over the world. Our experts stand ready to deploy at a moment’s notice to support the UN and local authorities in humanitarian crises.
Established in 1951, IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. With 173 member states, a further 8 states holding observer status and offices in over 100 countries, IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants. IOM works to help ensure the orderly and humane management of migration, to promote international cooperation on migration issues, to assist in the search for practical solutions to migration problems and to provide humanitarian assistance to migrants in need, including refugees and internally displaced people. The IOM Constitution recognizes the link between migration and economic, social and cultural development, as well as to the right of freedom of movement.
The Women's Refugee Commission improves the lives and protects the rights of women, children and youth displaced by conflict and crisis. We research their needs, identify solutions and advocate for programs and policies to strengthen their resilience and drive change in humanitarian practice. Since our founding in 1989, we have been a leading expert on the needs of refugee women and children, and the policies that can protect and empower them.
Our vision is a world in which refugee and internally displaced women, children and youth: are safe, healthy and self-reliant; have their human rights respected and protected; and inform and drive their own solutions and development.
