IASC Gender Handbook for Humanitarian Action, 2017 - Turkish Version
The Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) published the original "Women, Girls, Boys and Men. Different Needs — Equal Opportunities: Gender Handbook in Humanitarian Action" in 2006. The purpose of the handbook was to provide humanitarian actors with guidance on gender analysis, planning and actions to ensure that the needs, priorities and capacities of women, girls, men and boys are considered in all aspects of humanitarian response.
The Guidebook has been updated in light of the recent humanitarian reform, Transformative Agenda processes, the IASC Gender Marker, the Humanitarian Programme Cycle and other advances in humanitarian coordination, leadership, accountability and partnership - initiated by the IASC Gender Reference Group and led by UN Women and Oxfam, with substantive contributions from a multi-stakeholder Steering Committee comprised of representatives from CARE, GenCap, InterAction, OCHA, UNFPA, UNHCR, WFP, WRC and DG ECHO as an observer.
After wide consultations with IASC members, sector leaders, field users and donors, the Gender Handbook has been updated to reflect lessons learned by the humanitarian community and the main challenges faced in ensuring that gender is adequately integrated into humanitarian planning and programming.
The Handbook is translated into Turkish within the framework of the UN Women led project "Strengthening the Resilience of Syrian Women and Girls and Host Communities" funded by the European Union and the Government of Japan and implemented in partnership with Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality, International Labour Organisation and Association for Solidarity with Asylum Seekers and Migrants.
