Commitments on gender-based violence in humanitarian action

As a first step to explore existing gaps in addressing GBV needs, HERE has mapped the commitments made to tackle GBV in humanitarian action. The mapping exercise has thought of commitments both in terms of their source (where the commitments flow from) and their content (the scope of what different actors commit to). While a number of commitments made to promote gender equality and address GBV are intended to be upheld at all times, including during crises, the mapping has explored what exists in relation to GBV in humanitarian action and situations of armed conflict more specifically.
