Welcome to the Companion Guide to UNFPA’s E-learning Course, Managing Gender-based Violence Programmes in Emergencies. In response to its enthusiastic response from the humanitarian community, the Course developers decided to create a supplementary tool through which learners could engage more fully with key Course concepts. They asked Course participants if a Companion Guide would be useful, and the response was a resounding “Yes!”
The resulting Companion Guide was developed, in large part, from the feedback submitted by past Course participants and experts in the field. New additions to the E-learning material include Programmes in Focus, illustrative examples of GBV programming in action; Voices from the Field, first-person accounts from practitioners who have experienced and implemented the concepts covered in the Course; and Thinking Locally, short segments that encourage you to consider how you would apply issues to your own contexts.
