IASC Guidelines for Integrating Gender-based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Action (“GBV GUIDELINES”) ROLL OUT
The purpose of the training is to introduce the GBV Guidelines and specific methods, tools and recommendations for humanitarian actors and communities affected by armed conflict, natural disasters and other humanitarian emergencies to coordinate, plan, implement, monitor and evaluate essential actions for the prevention and mitigation of gender-based violence across all sectors of humanitarian response.
Note: additional guidance and information is contained in the downloadable version of this introductory document.
Overview: The GBV Guidelines Training package has been developed to support the roll out of the GBV Guidelines. Each of the 6 modules is comprised of facilitator notes and PowerPoint presentations (PPTs), including interactive activities, case studies and scenarios, as well as relevant handouts, where applicable. The goal of the package is to provide training participants with a participatory learning platform to engage with the GBV Guidelines, and specifically on the implementation of essential actions for the prevention and mitigation of gender-based violence. The modules aim to support locally-driven roll-out activities by providing facilitator support and guidance in engaging individuals in the uptake and use of GBV Guidelines’ recommendations.
Training Audience: Trainings may be delivered for a range of humanitarian actors within any of the Guidelines’ 12 main sectors/clusters of focus, including but not limited to cluster coordinators and partners, state actors, local partners, INGOs and NGOs, and communities engaged in preparedness, emergency response or recovery.
Facilitators: Facilitators should be familiar with GBV concepts with the ability to contextualize GBV prevention and mitigation strategies to the individual sector or cluster of focus.
Content Organization: the Training Modules:
The training material has been organized by module to permit greater flexibility in delivery, recognizing potential time and resource constraints, as well as differing levels of pre-existing knowledge amongst trainees. Originally intended for one-day trainings amongst clusters or sectors, the training content may also be integrated into multi-sectoral meetings (etc.).
The full training package consists of 6 modules overall, with objectives, audience and estimated time outlined below.
The core tools of the GBV Guidelines sit within the Thematic Area Guidance and are outlined in Module 5. However, based on participant knowledge and experience, it is recommended to introduce other critical aspects of GBV prevention and mitigation, such as those highlighted in Modules 2-4, also reflected within Part 2 of the Guidelines.
Materials: In addition to the training materials here, it is recommended to have one copy of the Thematic Area Guide (TAG) (specific to the cluster or sector of focus) per training participant.
