The Rapid Gender Analysis provides essential information about gender roles and responsibilities, capacities and vulnerabilities, together with programming recommendations. It is used in situations where time is of the essence and resources are scarce.

The Rapid Gender Analysis is built up progressively, using a range of primary and secondary information to understand gender roles and relations and how these may change during a crisis. It will assist in providing practical programming and operational recommendations to meet the different needs of women, men, boys and girls, and in ensuring we ‘do no harm’.
