Gender considerations in the humanitarian response in Yemen

This document presents some general and sectorial gender considerations that humanitarian actors need to take into account when planning and implementing the humanitarian response in Yemen

HCT and cluster commitments on gender equality

The Humanitarian Country Team in Yemen has taken concrete steps towards ensuring gender equality throughout the humanitarian response. The objective is to make sure that women, girls, boys and men of all ages, abilities and backgrounds have access to humanitarian assistance and protection that cater to their distinct needs and experiences.

Towards that end, the HCT has identified 5 minimum commitments on gender equality to be implemented by senior management in 2015. Clusters have also defined 6 common minimum commitments.

This document presents the 5 Humanitarian Country Team minimum commitments and 6 Cluster minimum commitments towards ensuring gender equality throughout the humanitarian response in Yemen.

Cluster Gender Focal Point Network

In order to enhance gender equality throughout the humanitarian response, a network of Cluster Gender Focal Points has been set up within the active IASC clusters. The aim is for each cluster to have two gender experts who can support cluster coordinators and cluster partners to make sure that women, girls, boys and men of all ages, abilities and backgrounds have access to humanitarian and protection services that cater to their distinct needs and experiences.
