FOREWORD

The year 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of the Global Shelter Cluster, the inter-agency coordination mechanism for shelter response. During these ten years, coordination has improved in consistency, shelter responses have grown in scale, and there are more people with experience in shelter programming, but people continue to lose their dwellings and be displaced due to conflict and natural disasters. Global humanitarian shelter needs continue to greatly exceed the capacity and resources to respond.

At USAID, we believe that gender equality and women’s empowerment isn’t a part of development but at the core of development. Water, energy, agriculture, conflict and health can all affect men and women differently. These differences are not barriers but opportunities to maximize the impact of our work by delivering development in a more targeted, effective and sustainable way. That’s why across our programs in more than 80 countries we are making evidence-based investments in gender equality and female empowerment.
