What’s the Issue?

When crisis occurs, people’s lives change in an instant. As a result, death, injury, displacement, and the destruction of infrastructure and institutions impact entire communities.

Crises impact women, girls, boys and men of all ages differently.

As a result, their needs and interests differ, as do their resources, capacities and coping strategies. Women are often the first responders to a crisis, and they play a central role in the survival and resilience of families and communities.
