Gender and refugee response training series: Turkey regional refugee and resilience plan

Following up on UN Women’s support in 2020 for gender-responsive approaches and awareness in the Syria Coordination mechanisms in Turkey and in regional refugee and resilience plan (3RP), the UN Women Country Office in Turkey and the UN Women Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia organized a "Gender and refugee response training series," held virtually on 26 January 2021, covered key subjects for addressing gender in refugee responses and highlighted country-specific practices. The agenda included gender mainstreaming principles and their application to refugee response programming; legislative frameworks for gender equality and the prevention of gender-based violence at the national and international levels; monitoring and evaluation practices; and the use of gender-sensitive data and indicators. Focusing on gender-responsive approaches in humanitarian action, the training increased capacities in using the Interagency Steering Committee (IASC) Gender with Age Marker (GAM) self-reporting tool and its use in designing gender-responsive projects.
