As part of a collaboration with the International Organization for Migration (IOM), NRC has contextualised and applied the IOM/Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) protection assessment toolkit for the urban and out of camp displacement (UDOC) setting of eastern Afghanistan. This report outlines and analyses the findings of the assessment, and makes recommendations for further action and programme development to enhance women’s participation and protection in this context.

Gender inequality remains one of the most shocking injustices of our time. In every country in the world women and girls are discriminated against and denied their rights
solely because of their gender. They are disproportionately represented amongst the poorest and most marginalised and excluded people, and have less power, fewer
resources, and less voice than men and boys.
Enhancing women’s participation in camp governance – lessons learnt from the Women’s Participation Project
Following is the video of the webinar recorded on 11 September 2018. Watch the webinar to familiarize yourself with the Women's Participation Project and its key learning and recommendations, to explore the training resources and participatory tools in the Toolkit and how to use the Toolkit to promote women and girls’ participation in camp and camp-like settings.
The webinar was hosted by IOM and Women's Refugee Commission.
In 2018, NRC – through its Urban Displacement and Out of Camp (UDOC) programme – partnered with IOM on a project to support women’s participation in out-of-camp settings, while also contributing to global learning on women’s participation techniques.
