Minimum Standards for Prevention and Response to Gender-Based Violence in Emergencies
The Minimum Standards comprise a set of 18 inter-connected standards that draw upon UNFPA’s comparative advantage and global expertise and are based on international best practice.
The Standards speak to UNFPA’s mandate to coordinate GBV prevention and response in emergencies as co-lead with UNICEF of the Area of Responsibility of the Global Protection Cluster. Working in coordination with other UN agencies and international organizations, UNFPA can support national authorities and partners to build and strengthen existing health and protection systems. Contained in the Standards are tools to address the bottlenecks that prevent the prioritization of GBV prevention and response in emergencies, and guidance on working in partnership with survivors and members of the crisis-affected population to build individual and community resilience.
