1 THE PROJECT
Globally, policies and international standards on gender in emergencies do exist. However, the implementation of humanitarian assistance with a strong gender perspective remains ad hoc, with limited accountability of implementing agencies.
This project: Institutionalizing Gender in Emergencies: Bridging Policy and Practice was designed to explore how to better institutionalize gender-related standards in humanitarian assistance.
This final evaluation report reviews the project ‘Institutionalizing Gender in Emergencies: Bridging Policy and Practice in the Humanitarian System’, which was funded by the European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations – Enhanced Response Capacity fund (ECHO-ERC) and implemented by Oxfam in Pakistan, South Sudan, Ethiopia and the Dominican Republic between September 2015 and March 2017.
