The paper previews findings from forthcoming reasearch into the extent to which global humanitarian funding is addressing gender objectives. It includes recommendations for governments, the UN and other institutions, and NGOs on steps to translate the Call to Action commitments into action, including:
- bringing more effective approaches to gender equity and gender-based violence into wider global humanitarian reforms, especially deliberations towards the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit
- enhancing accountability through more comprehensive and aligned approaches to Gender Markers
- supporting the scaling-up of frontline sexual and reproductive health in emergencies programmes
- enhancing efforts to engage southern women’s civil society groups in humanitarian policy and practice.
