The Compendium is intended as a companion to the 2015 Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Guidelines for Integrating Gender-Based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Action and its companion resource, the GBV Pocket Guide. The guidance was developed through the efforts of 15 organizations who contributed expertise in the inception, design and review of the document. The process was led and funded through support of CARE USA on behalf the CVA and GBV advisory group of the GBV Guidelines Reference Group.
CARE’s Rapid Gender Analysis (RGA) toolkit provides information about the different needs, capacities and coping strategies of women, men, boys and girls in a crisis situation. The RGA toolkit contains guidance on how to do every step of a Rapid Gender Analysis, and can be adapted to suit each country’s unique situation. In addition to the Guidance Notes, the RGA toolkit includes tools for primary data collection, secondary data review, analysing the data collected, and making recommendations.
CARE’s Gender Marker is a self-assessment program quality and learning tool. It measures the integration of gender into programming along the CARE Gender Continuum from harmful to transformative. The Gender Marker enables CARE to track, improve on, and support more effective, gender integrated programming. The Gender Marker is designed to be used in combination with Monitoring, Evaluation and Accountability systems to help teams reflect on the integration of gender in order to learn from and improve the gendered approach of their work.
