In the oPt and around the world, there is an increasing recognition amongst humanitarian actors of the urgency to ensure that the different needs of women, girls, men and boys are taken into account and included in all humanitarian assistance (design, planning, implementation and monitoring). Failure to do so hampers an effective humanitarian response and may put beneficiaries’ lives at risk1. According to IASC Gender Handbook for Humanitarian Action2, integrating gender equality also reinforces a human rights-based approach to humanitarian action which improves programming by respecting and protecting the universally recognized rights and dignities of every individual as a human being. Incorporating gender equality in humanitarian action therefore enhances the impact of humanitarian strategies and interventions.
