Gender Equality

Gender and Power Analysis Report: Water for Women Project, Timor-Leste 2018

This is a Gender and Power Analysis for the Australian Aid DFAT funded, Water for Women (WfW) Project commencing July 2018-December 2022. The project will be implemented in Manufahi, Liquica municipalities of Timor-Leste by a consortium of Water Aid and CARE International, who both have strong country presence.

The project will equip each municipality to lead gender transformative, nutrition-sensitive, inclusive, sustainable WASH services to contribute to improvements in health, gender equality and social inclusion. The project will mainstream gender equality and social inclusion approaches by developing and implementing gender and inclusion responsive national and sub-national platforms. Addressing gender inequalities and social exclusion is fundamental to WASH and is embedded in each of the four outcomes of the project:

- Gender equality and social inclusion integrated into effective national WASH systems.
- Women and men share roles and responsibilities in decision making in the household and at
the community level, with a particular emphasis on WASH.
- Municipalities use gender transformative approaches to deliver nutrition sensitive, inclusive,
sustainable WASH services.
- Strengthened National WASH sector knowledge management and learning systems, including
effective exchange between relevant sectors.

The purpose of Gender and Power Analysis (GPA) was to validate the activities already considered for the project but also to identify gender equality and social inclusion gaps within the WASH sector that could be further strengthened by the project. Read More...

Umodzi Project: Men, Women, Boys and Girls in Alliance to Achieve Gender Equality Endline Report

Umodzi Project: Men, Women, Boys and Girls in Alliance to Achieve Gender Equality, was a research project, whose aim was to test the effectiveness of adding gender conscious practice curriculum (GCP) and intergenerational dialogues on existing Auntie Stella life skills curriculum to accelerate and enhance adolescent life skills and sexual reproductive health programming. The project was implemented in Suza Zone. CARE Malawi, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) at district level, had already been working in Suza and Linyangwa Zones to implement an enhanced life skills curriculum that was being implemented by public school teachers in two zones in Kasungu District. The initiative was supported by PCTFI under the CARE Malawi Adolescent Girls’ Empowerment (AGE) program.

Under the Umodzi project, the idea was to test the effectiveness of adding a gender conscious practice curriculum to the existing life skills curriculum. Therefore, the main activity that was implemented under the project was the delivery of a gender synchronized intervention through the Gender Conscious Practice (GCP) curriculum to the supplementary life skills curriculum that was delivered after school by trained teachers in Suza and Linyangwa Zones in Kasungu District. To enhance adoption of GCP, the project promoted intergenerational discussions through the Working with Men and Boys to Advance Gender Equality and SRH (WMB/SRH) manual targeting mostly older men, commonly called ‘Male Champions of gender’ that were recruited through the Pathways program.

This document is a report of findings of an end line evaluation of the Umodzi Project implemented in Suza Education Zone in Kasungu District in the Central Region of Malawi. Data collection and analysis for the end line evaluation took place in February 2018 while the report was compiled in March 2018. The end line evaluation was part of evaluation activities for the project, which were subcontracted to CDM to support learning. Read More...

Rapid Gender And GBV Assessment in MMC and Jere Local Governments – Borno State

The unprecedented gender and protection implications of the NE Nigeria insurgency prompted CARE International to initiate a gender and GBV assessment. The assessment was undertaken in two phases: a desk review and consultation with stakeholders in March 2017 to gather relevant data of the gender and protection context in NE Nigeria in conflict and post-conflict situations, as well as information on existing legal provision and frameworks. A field assessment was conducted in January 2018, to complete the first assessment with primary data from affected women and men in Borno and Yobe states.

Rapid Gender and GBV1 assessments provide information about the different GBV risks, needs, capacities and coping strategies of women, men, boys and girls in a crisis. The analysis is built up progressively using a range of primary and secondary information to understand gender roles and power relations and the implied GBV risks and how they may change during a crisis. The analysis provides practical, programming and operational recommendations to meet the different needs of women, men, boys and girls, to ensure that humanitarian actors ‘do no harm’ in their operations. The global objective of this assessment is to improve the quality and effectiveness of CARE and partner’s response to the North East Nigeria crisis. Read More...

Gender and GBV analysis and operational suggestions – CARE Nigeria field Assessment

CARE international has deployed a multisector assessment team in North East Nigeria to assess the increasing humanitarian needs and inform CARE’s emergency Strategy and response programming. The assessment will look at the areas of food security, Sexual and reproductive Health and Gender based violence. The gender-specific dynamics and impacts of the insurgency require a strong focus on gender mainstreaming and sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) prevention and mitigation. Therefore a rapid gender and GBV analysis has been conducted with the global objective to improve the quality and effectiveness of CARE and partner’s response in the North East Nigeria through strong integration of gender equality and GBV at all stage of the humanitarian project cycle.

This analysis aim to provide answer to the following key questions:
• What are the different Impact of the insurgency for girls, women, boys and men and what
are the different needs of these groups?
• Who has access, and who has control over what resources and assistance? Who has the
decision among the family and the community? How the crisis has affected this power
relation, what social norms and practices affect the access and control?
• What are main GBV risks? Who is most affected and at-risk among girls, women, boys and
men? What are main social, cultural norms and practices that shape GBV in the Area?
• What are main GBV services providers and actors in the ground and what is their capacity to deliver? Do GBV survivors have access to comprehensive GBV services? What are main gaps
in service
• Formulate geographic and programmatic recommendations to guide CARE decision on GBV
• Develop a GAP to improve gender integration into the assistance. Read More...

Suivi de la mise en œuvre de la stratégie d’appui aux survivant(e)s des violences basées sur le Genre

Dans le cadre de l’assistance aux réfugiés centrafricains et leurs populations d’accueil dans les régions de l’Est et de l’Adamaoua, CARE Cameroun, avec un financement de la Coopération Allemande (GIZ), a mis en œuvre un projet d’Assistance aux survivant(e)s de VBG de Janvier à Juillet 2016. Cette assistance a ciblé les réfugiés centrafricains et leurs populations hôtes dans 11 villages des communes de Meiganga, Kette, Djohong, Borgop, Yamba et Ngaoui, régions de l’Est et de l’Adamaoua. Une analyse protection et violences basées sur le genre a été conduite en février 2016 au démarrage de ce projet pour mieux comprendre la problématique et formuler des recommandations pour la mise en œuvre du projet. Les résultats de cette analyse ont permis aussi de définir une approche d’intervention holistique qui implique tous les acteurs qui interviennent dans le domaine des VBG. Le présent rapport concerne la mission de suivi de la mise en œuvre de la stratégie du projet, mission conduite du 16 au 28 juillet par la spécialiste Genre en urgence de CARE international.

Évaluation des violences basées sur le genre au sein des refugiés centrafricains et leurs populations hôtes dans les départements de la Kadey et du Mbéré (Régions de l’Est et l’Adamaoua- Cameroun)

Depuis le début de la crise en République Centrafricaine (RCA) en 2013, le Cameroun a enregistré un afflux massif des refugiés centrafricains. En février 2016, ils sont estimés à environ 259 145 réfugiés accueillis dans 7 sites aménagés et les villages des Régions de l’Est, de l’Adamaoua et du Nord. Les régions de L’Est et L’Adamaoua seules abritent 97% des refugiés (voir ci-contre).

Une analyse Genre conduite par CARE en septembre 2014 et l’expérience sur le terrain ont fait ressortir une situation préoccupante en termes de protection notamment pour les femmes et les filles refugiées ainsi qu’une augmentation de l’incidence des cas d’agressions physiques et sexuelles envers les femmes, perpétrées par des membres de la communauté hôte ainsi que par les réfugiés eux- mêmes.

Dans le Département de la Kadey, à l’Est, la majorité de réfugiés vivent dans des villages d’accueil et les autres dans plusieurs sites dont ceux de Lolo, Mbilé et Timangolo qui accueillent 26124 réfugiés répartis dans 7403 ménages.

Ces nouveaux réfugiés M’bororos, viennent ajouter à des anciens refugiés centrafricains de la même ethnie accueillis et installés dans la zone depuis 2005.

En mai 2014 CARE a conduit des évaluations des besoins qui ont permis de développer une stratégie de réponseaxée dans le domaine de l’eau, l’hygiène et l’assainissement (EHA), la santé mentale et l’appui psychosocial (SMPS), la sécurité alimentaire avec comme cible principale les réfugiés et leurs populations hôtes le long de l’axe Bertoua-Kentzou and Batouri-Toktoyo.
Actuellement CARE met en œuvre des interventions sur l’EHA sur le site de Timangolo et la SMPS dans les sites de Lolo et Mbile.
Afin de mieux répondre aux besoins spécifiques des réfugiés, hommes, femmes, garçons et filles, CARE organise une analyse genre dont l’objectif est d’appréhender les besoins, les vulnérabilités et les capacités spécifiques aux hommes, aux femmes, aux garçons et aux filles ainsi que les relations, les normes et pratiques genre au sein des réfugiés dans les sites de Timangolo, Lolo, Mbile et leurs communautés hôtes.
