Empower Women and Girls and Gender as a Cross-Cutting Issue


2017 Analytical Paper on Self-Reporting on Agenda for Humanity Transformation 3D

While there are positive indications of investments in the empowerment of crisis-affected women and girls, the unavailability of sufficient funding, as well as of mechanisms tracking funding for empowering women and girls, particularly to local women’s organization, remains a challenge. The lack of active participation of affected and local women and the insufficient availability and use of sex- and age-disaggregated data are two other challenges that emerge. Coordinated action by all humanitarian actors supported by a robust accountability mechanism, adequate resources, partnerships, a strong evidence-base, and innovative approaches are needed to support and empower crisis-affected women and girls.
