A Rapid Gender Analysis (RGA) helps understand pre-existing power dynamics between women and men as well as existing vulnerabilities women, men, boys and girls were facing; it provide information about the different needs, capacities and coping strategies of these groups in a crisis, power dynamics between different gender/age groups and pre-existing vulnerabilities and practical programming and operational recommendations to meet the different needs of women, men, boys and girls and to ensure we ‘do no harm’.
CARE International in Indonesia (CII) is present in Serang town (inland) and Serang Regency among the most impacted area with an ongoing WASH in schools project implemented jointly by CARE and partner Bina Masyarakat Peduli (BMP). There is no information about potential damage on the schools or infrastructure supported by CARE yet but two of the schools for replication are in affected areas. RGAs were conducted in Sulawesi and Lombok to ensure the responses integrated gender dimensions from the very beginning.
