Women's Protection and livelihoods: Assistance to Central African Refugees and Chadian Returnees in southern Chad - Program Evaluation Final Report, November 2016

I. WOMEN'S PROTECTION AND LIVELIHOODS PROGRAM

There are currently over 107,000 displaced people, over half (54%) of whom are women, from CAR in Southern Chad as a result of the ongoing conflict in CAR which began in December 2012 and continues today. During humanitarian crises, women and girls’ exposure to gender-based violence (GBV) is significantly heightened, often more so during displacement.

The IRC’s Women’s Protection and Livelihoods Program in Southern Chad contributed to GBV response, to safely restore livelihoods and to prevent and reduce the risk of GBV, including sexual exploitation of women and girls, or spending time in areas where they are more vulnerable to search for provisions, which could expose women and girls to further risks of violence.
