Gender in Emergencies

CARE’s Gender in Emergencies approach is central to our response and provides a lens for all our humanitarian work. We use this approach to understand the different needs, capacities, and vulnerabilities of people of all genders in all their diversity.

Key resources

  • The CARE Emergency Toolkit, is accessible online and provides guidance and links to all of the relevant tools and information to take a gender in emergencies approach. Two important tools that help us inform our programming are:
  • The Rapid Gender Analysis, assists in providing practical programming and operational recommendations to meet the different needs of women, men, boys and girl, and in ensuring we ‘do no harm’.
  • The CARE Gender Marker enables us to implement and continuously improve our gender integrated programming.
