Inter-Agency Standing Committee. 2015. Guidelines for Integrating Gender-Based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Action: Reducing risk, promoting resilience and aiding recovery.
The purpose of these Guidelines is to assist humanitarian actors and communities affected by armed conflict, natural disasters and other humanitarian emergencies to coordinate, plan, implement, monitor and evaluate essential actions for the prevention and mitigation of gender-based violence (GBV) across all sectors of humanitarian response.
The Women’s Participation Project was piloted by IOM Cox’s Bazar in 2018 to better understand how women’s participation in governance structures in camps and camp-like settings could contribute to mitigating and reducing the risks of gender-based violence.
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.
Women in Displacement is a web-based platform dedicated to strengthening the participation of women and girls in displacement. The platform enables sharing and exchanging of tools and materials, and fosters user feedback and discussion. The platform is a product of the Women's Participation project, which was developed and implemented by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), with technical support from Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC), and in coordination with the Global Camp Coordination and Camp Management Cluster.
