GBViE Programme Resource Pack Kit 3.2: Programming - Building Girls and Womens Safety and Resilience
UNICEF’s approach to building girls’ and women’s safety and reducing the risk of gender-based violence in emergencies (GBViE) involves three distinct areas of programming:
1. Building girls’ and women’s safety and resilience through targeted interventions to reduce GBV-related risk and vulnerabilities. This programming focuses on communities – girls and women in particular – during immediate and ongoing response and recovery. This part of the Resource Pack has further information on this area of programming.
2. Building duty bearer accountability for conflict-related sexual violence prevention and response in accordance with relevant international norms and standards. See Kit 3.3: Programming – Building Accountability for further information.
3. Integrating GBV risk mitigation across clusters and sectors in line with the IASC GBV Guidelines. 1 See Kit 3.6: Programming – Integrating GBV Risk Mitigation Across UNICEF Sectors and Clusters for further information.
This part of the Resource Pack – Kit 3.2: Programming – Building Girls’ and Women’s Safety and Resilience – contains guidance and resources to help UNICEF country offices (COs) work with stakeholders to design, implement and monitor targeted interventions to build girls’ and women’s safety and reduce their vulnerability to GBViE.
Kit 3.2: Programming – Building Girls’ and Women’s Safety and Resilience also includes a Safety and Resilience Tools Booklet that contains a number of tools to support community safety, dignity kit and safe space programming in emergency settings. These tools are introduced in Sections 2-4 of this Kit.
Kit 3.2: Programming – Building Girls’ and Women’s Safety and Resilience includes Introduction to Programming to Build Girls’ and Women’s Safety and Resilience, a Learning Module designed to build knowledge on targeted interventions to (i) help protect and empower girls and women in emergencies, and (ii) facilitate planning for implementation of community safety planning, dignity kit programming and safe space programming as part of humanitarian response in line with UNICEF’s Minimum GBViE Response Package.
