This baseline report outlines key findings from the assessment conducted in the internally displaced persons (IDP) camps of Pedernales I and Pedernales II in northwestern coast of Ecuador by IOM between June 13th and 20th, 2016. The assessment set out to map existing governance structures in Pedernales I and Pedernales II and learn how displaced men, women, and various at-risk groups, including adolescent girls and women and girls with disabilities currently participate in camp life and camp decision-making processes.
The assessment also examined the barriers and opportunities to increasing women’s participation in camp life and camp governance, and explored strategies that could facilitate this. Findings from this study will be used in a learning document that will inform CCCM Global Cluster and the wider humanitarian system on how to improve women’s participation in camp governance structures
and contribute to reduction in women and girls’ risks to GBV.
