Learning and resources on gender in education
Guideline: The Gender Handbook for Humanitarian Action
Humanitarian action provides lifesaving services and facilitates recovery for communities affected by armed conflict, natural disasters and other complex emergencies. The responsibility of humanitarian actors to promote gender equality is supported by a normative framework validated by extensive field experience. The Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Gender Handbook sets out the rationale for integrating gender equality into humanitarian action and provides practical guidance for doing so across sectors.
