GBV Risk Mitigation - An Essential Approach to Meeting Core Humanitarian Priorities

front cover
Date published

Written primarily for non-GBV specialists—those who work in sectors of humanitarian response other than GBV—this briefing note begins with a review of what GBV risk mitigation entails and how GBV risk mitigation supports good humanitarian programming. It then looks at two thematic priorities within humanitarian response—accountability to affected populations (AAP) and localization — and explores how undertaking GBV risk mitigation can support these agendas. It goes on to discuss some of the potential limitations for sector actors of streamlining or merging GBV risk mitigation into these broader thematic areas. The note concludes with a few key takeaways about how to promote success in GBV risk mitigation across all sectors of humanitarian response and ensure the best outcomes for sector programming.
