1. The Role of the Grand Bargain Cash Work stream
HDN TT’s 2017/2018 work plan has three objectives: 1) Shape and contribute to common understanding of what is required to strengthen the humanitarian development and peacebuilding nexus, 2) Review and assess current policy, guidance, and operational tools based on the common understanding to identify gaps and best practices, and 3) Ensure coherence in field support towards successful implementation of the NWoW.
Breaking news: Translators without Borders and the IASC AAP and PSEA Task Team are delighted to announce the publication of the 50th language version of the simplified core principles relating to sexual exploitation and abuse. The translation in Kanuri – one of the main languages of northeast Nigeria – released this week, represents the halfway mark in our stated aim of disseminating the principles in 100 languages of aid workers and affected people.

This Tip Sheet offers interventions, guiding questions and an example of how 4 Key Gender Equality Measures (GEMs) support gender equality in Early Recovery projects and programs. The IASC GAM identifies the extent to which these elements are consistently present in proposals or implemented projects.

(Endorsed by IASC AAP/PSEA Task Team and REACH in 2018)
This is a ‘menu’ of potential questions for organisations to choose from and adapt to the context, situation and phase of response they are operating within. The questions are designed for use in MSNAs for the collective response but could also be adapted for sector level assessments at both inter-agency and agency levels.
They can be used with different types of data collection methods including household and community level interviews and focus group discussions.

KEY RESULTS FOR 2017
Humanitarian workers can be disciplined – even fired – for unacceptable behaviour in relation to sex. These are the rules they must comply with:
Humanitarian workers are not allowed to have sexual relationships with anyone under the age of 18, even if it is legal in their country. Saying they did not know the person’s true age is not a valid excuse.
The GenCap Project, established in 2007 under the auspices of the Inter-Agency Standing Committee, in partnership with the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) and the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), aims to strengthen the capacity of humanitarians to undertake gender equality programming in humanitarian action. The IASC Gender Marker is the key tool used by the humanitarian community to assess how gender is incorporated in humanitarian projects.
