Older women’s role in their families and communities during displacement can have a significant influence on the safety of women and girls. Camp Management agencies should engage with older women in order to harness and capitalise on their role.
Through this study, NRC has developed and piloted a methodology to understand the role that older women play in supporting their families and communities during displacement, in order to
develop methods for harnessing the role of older women to improve humanitarian outcomes. The research was conducted as part of a broader project managed by the International Organization
for Migration as the global co-lead of the Camp Coordination and Camp Management Cluster. This wider project explores how women’s participation, both inside and outside camps, contributes to enhancing the safety of women and girls.
