Emergencies

A growing problem

The number of complex and protracted emergencies is increasing. As a result, more people than ever are vulnerable and need humanitarian support.

Disasters, crises and conflicts have a disproportionate effect on women. They increase the likelihood of women's human rights violations. They often exclude women from decision making and deny them access to resources. And yet women and women's organisations are significantly underrepresented in humanitarian responses.

To address this, we focus on cultivating women's leadership in emergencies. This is a central pillar of our human rights-based approach. We empower women, helping them to play an active role in humanitarian responses.

We also shift power to local organisations and movements.
