In recent years, the world has seen a dramatic change in the nature of crises:
Nearly 3 years since March 2015 escalation of the conflict, Yemen is slowly choking and millions of Yemenis are at risk of dying of hunger, cholera or any other consequence of the conflict in a severely impoverished country already on the brink of collapse prior to the current crisis.
Continued fighting has not only destroyed the State’s economic fabric, but has also been increasingly eroding the adaptive, absorptive and transformative resilience of households, whose abilities to sustain positive coping measures has almost completely disappeared.
This Tip Sheet describes interventions, poses action-oriented questions and offers an example of the 4 Key GEMs. These critical programming steps connect to generate gender equality in Early Recovery projects and programs. The IASC GAM (described below) flags whether these steps are in proposals or implemented projects.
Gender Equality in Early Recovery: Programs equally benefit women and men and contribute to the empowerment of women.
The Early Recovery sector can make things fair by:
During the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit (WHS), UN Member States, Civil Society Organizations, private sector and media gathered on the topic of Transforming Humanitarian Action with and for Young People, and called to align strategies, approaches and programmatic responses to reach all young people and empower young women and men, and adolescent girls and boys to be agents of positive transformation.
HIGHLIGHTS OF 2015 ACHIEVEMENTS
A considerable number of displaced populations travelled across the contact line to access healthcare, education, employment, markets, services and their social entitlements, increased stress on available resources and services and impacted on both IDPs and host communities. Early Recovery Cluster partners contributed 11% to the total humanitarian response budget and 16% of total target population reached. The details of accomplishment are as follows:
The IASC established the CWGER in 2005 with the aim of enhancing the global capacity for developing relief and recovery-related interventions, enhancing the impact of development interventions, and integrating risk reduction measures at the very early stages of emergency response and beyond.
The CWGER is chaired by UNDP and is comprised of 31 active global partners from the humanitarian and development communities, including representatives of UN Agencies, Red Cross Movement, and NGOs.
