Mainstreaming Gender Equality in Preparedness and Response in Nepal: A Resource Guide
Abstract:
he resource guide sets out responsibilities for collective coordination under the leadership of the Nepal UNCT/HCT to ensure that human rights of women, girls, boys and men across different backgrounds are equally promoted and protected, and their distinct needs, interests, resources and capacities are incorporated into preparedness, immediate response to early recovery and to reconstruction and transition. A crisis or natural disaster amplifies pre-crisis inequalities, impacting women, girls, boys and men differently. The IASC Gender Policy urges all actors to meaningfully take gender equality into consideration at all stages of the response, right from the outset. The resource guide is based on the work of the Humanitarian Inter-Cluster Gender Working Group in Nepal and builds upon lessons learnt and good practices in integrating gender equality in the 2015 earthquake response, and complies with agreed normative standards and guidance. While gender norms affect a person's individual access to assistance, being a female or male interplays with other factors such as age, caste, ethnicity, religion, disability, marital status amongst others to further impact access, participation and safety. This note assists all actors to promote equality and dignity of all people affected by a crisis based on their distinct gender/age/diversity needs. #UNOCHA #UNWOMEN #IASC #GENCAP #UNCT #HCT #HICGWG #GENDEREQUALITY #RIGHTS #WOMENRIGHTS #2016
