Improving safety for women and girls: practical examples from multiple field settings and sectors

In 2018, the GBV Guidelines Implementation Support Team1 launched a GBV Risk Mitigation Capacity-Building Initiative on GBV risk mitigation in emergencies for frontline and field-based practitioners. The initiative expands upon two years of experience building capacity and infrastructure in the humanitarian system on GBV risk mitigation strategies and approaches.

Following two five-day workshops in Amman, Jordan for the Middle East region and Nairobi, Kenya for the East Africa/Nigeria region, 64 practitioners initiated six-month field-based practicums to apply their learning and knowledge in their day-to-day work. This practice brief highlights 11 practicum projects in Ethiopia, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and the Whole of Syria response in Camp Coordination and Camp Management, Health, Education, Food Security, Nutrition, Shelter and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) sectors.
