The Baseline Report - South Sudan, Women's Participation Pilot Project, 2016, resource is the result of a collaborative effort between the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) & International Organization for Migration (IOM).   This baseline report outlines key findings from the assessment conducted in the Bentiu Protection of Civilian site (PoC) in Unity State, South Sudan, collected by IOM between June 27 and July 15, 2016.  The assessment set out to map existing governance structures in Bentiu PoC and learn how displaced men, women, and various at-risk groups, including adolescent girls and women and girls with disabilities, currently participate in camp life and camp decision making processes. The Endline Report on South Sudan is also available on the Humanitarian Library: report conducted on baselines assessments in South Sudan is part of a multi-country operation in Ecuador, Iraq, Nigeria, and the Philippines - in order to establish the existing levels of women’s participation in each location and identify strategies to improve their participation. The identified strategies will inform pilot interventions that assess which approaches improve women’s participation and whether they have an additional benefit on perceptions around their risks to Gender-based Violence (GBV).  For further information on this project and others please visit,, where you can find out more about accessing toolkits and training.
