QUICK ESCAPE FROM SITE

Overview

  • According to the principles of humanitarian aid and the international legal framework (Section II), the humanitarian community, governments, donors, peacekeepers, the UN and all others engaged in working with and for conflict-affected populations are collectively accountable for preventing and responding to violence against women. Ensuring effective VAWG coordination is the first step in meeting these responsibilities, in so far as coordination efforts are key to constructing a unified and coherent multi-sectoral response. As a result, humanitarian actors have a duty to support and participate in GBV coordination in order to strengthen and enhance the protection and care of women and children in situations of humanitarian crisis.
