GBV Mainstreaming in Shelter and Site Planning

IOM has continued to work on Gender-Based Violence mainstreaming in shelter and site planning, most recently conducting field workshops in Cox’s Bazar and North-East Nigeria, each focusing on GBV risk reduction through site planning and upgrading interventions. Guidance to reduce GBV risks in the Distribution of NFI’s and Cash has been tested as part of a workshop in Afghanistan, and IOM looks forward to receiving feedback on the current draft, available online or upon request. In line with continuing to integrate protection risk mitigation into good shelter programming, IOM has also joined the Australian Red Cross, IFRC and NRC to co-lead the new GSC Working Group on Inclusion of Persons with Disability.
