This publication discusses tools to help OCHA address gender equality. It addresses OCHA’s seven minimum gender commitments.
This toolkit is designed to provide practical guidance to OCHA staff to effectively integrate gender into their day-to-day activities. It supports the implementation of the 2012 OCHA Gender Equality Policy.
The toolkit comprises two sections. Section one covers the basics of gender equality programming in humanitarian action. Section two provides practical information on mainstreaming gender in core functions of OCHA’s work.
This tool provides practical tips on how to ensure that gender is mainstreamed in preparedness efforts on the ground.
