Guidelines for Integrating Gender-Based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Action

Reducing risk, promoting resilience and aiding recovery

Safety Audits in Somalia

As in many emergency-affected contexts, women and girls in Somalia face the risk of multiple forms of gender­-based violence (GBV), including sexual violence, intimate partner violence and forced marriage. The conditions in displacement sites — such as overcrowding; lack of access to safe water, latrine and bathing facilities; and shelters constructed of flimsy, transparent materials — only exacerbate these risks.
