Assessment, Monitoring, and Evaluation Gender Guidance

This toolkit is part of a wider effort to provide impactful and sustainable capacity development for shelter practitioners to address Gender-Based Violence (GBV) related issues through site planning, shelter and settlement responses. The approach will be to mainstream GBV risk reduction within shelter programming from assessments through to evaluation. This toolkit includes key tools with which to ensure this integration namely through (Assessments, Risk and Mitigation and Responding to GBV incidents). It also aims to improve the contextual guidance and the evidence base available relating to GBV in shelter and settlement response. It supports the IASC GBV Guidelines and aims to contextualise the advice given in a practical way for Shelter, Settlement and Recovery (SS&R) practitioners.

This toolkit will provide shelter practitioners with key tools for assessing and mitigating GBV within regular shelter activities in order to provide suitable and safe shelter assistance. It consists of this guidance note which supports the tools in the appendices. These tools aim to help shelter practitioners to mainstream GBV risk mitigation into their shelter programming - ultimately reducing vulnerabilities to GBV, particularly for women and girls.
