Institutionalizing Gender in Emergencies: Bridging Policy and Practice in the Humanitarian System
The Gender-Based Violence (GBV) Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) is developed to facilitate joint referral pathway for women, men, boys and girls at risk in the humanitarian operation, including Reception Centers, camps and host communities where the IDPs live. Gender Based Violence (GBV) is a life threatening protection, health, and human rights issue that can have devastating impact on women and children in particular, as well as families and communities.
“Rehabilitating, Repairing and Upgrading Critical Shelters and Damaged Houses” presents shelter guidelines and offers step-by-step guidance. The booklet is directed at the humanitarian aid community, displaced community members, and camp technical working committees.
Enclosed here is the TorqAid Toolkit. This includes a number of useful materials and articles for both the development and humanitarian practitioner. This includes an invaluable humanitarian/development bibliography and agency directory; the Disaster Risk Management (DRM) framework around which TorqAid’s DRM training is based; and useful articles on the Project Management Cycle (PMC), participatory tools such as the Ten Seed Technique (TST) and Seasonal Calendar, and twelve teaching tips (Teach like a Champion!).
Are you looking for PSEA Networks at country levels ?
Three SEA coordination mechanisms exist in CAR: HCT, UNCT, and SRSG/MINUSCA. Common actors bridge the task-forces at both senior and technical levels i.e. HC, DHC, UNHCR, UNFPA, UNICEF. (HCT) PSEA Task Force
During emergencies, coordinated, clear and credible communication aids in minimizing resulting health, social and economic costs. However, the uncertainty that characterizes emergencies typically fuels fear and panic among communities, and spreads misconceptions and rumors that affect people’s ability to appropriately respond to the emergency.
An estimated 9.8 million persons with disabilities are forcibly displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict and generalized violence.
They are among the most “at-risk” and socially excluded groups in any refugee and displaced community. They are often not identified in data collection or included in needs assessments, and thus are not considered in program design or implementation.
PASSA is a participatory method of disaster risk reduction (DRR) related to shelter and settlements safety. It is a variation of Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation (PHAST), which has been used by many Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies in water and sanitation programmes since the late 1990s. PHAST in turn is based on a participatory approach called SARAR which stands for Self-esteem, Associative strengths, Resourcefulness, Action-planning and Responsibility.
Pooled funds are considered to be one of the most efficient mechanisms of humanitarian financing as they reduce transaction costs and allow for a better prioritization of assistance among different organizations. They enable humanitarian partners operating in countries affected by natural disasters and armed conflict to quickly deliver flexible and effective life-saving assistance to people who need it the most. You can contribute to two main types of pooled funds:

What are IASC products?
Since 1992, the humanitarian organisations represented in the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) have agreed several policy statements, working tools, guidelines, or manuals, which help to set the normative frameworks, common standards and good practice for the humanitarian community. Given the inclusive membership of the IASC, these products carry a broad consensus within the humanitarian community and guide the work of many UN and non-UN humanitarian partners.
Responding to the climate challenge requires collective action from all countries, cities, businesses, and private citizens. With currently USD 10.3 billion pledged, the Green Climate Fund (GCF), is the world’s largest climate fund and is designed to be the main financial instrument to meet the global commitment made by advanced economies to jointly mobilise $100 billion per year by 2020, from a variety of sources, to address the pressing mitigation and adaptation needs of developing countries.
The Bama shelter was agreed by the sector in mid-2016, when Bama was first accessed by the international response, to adequately cover shelter need at scale, and quickly.
The emergency shelter is designed for peri-urban and rural areas outside of Maiduguri Metropolitan Area, with more difficult and unstable access, and associated higher logistics cost – but where people are expected to remain for some time.
The Bakasi shelter was agreed by the sector in late 2015. The design was originally conceived for a relocation project on a clean site (Bakasi Camp), and to inform a wider drive for raising and harmonizing shelter standards across Maiduguri’s camps.
Emergency shelter kit contents were harmonized by the sector in June 2016.
The kit is designed for distribution to relieve immediate, life-saving shelter need for new or secondary displacement, or people on the move – to tide people over until a better solution can be found.
Light and mobile kit that can be easily transported and delivered quickly, at scale, as well as relatively easily carried by people to their next destinations if they are on the move.
