Gender in Emergencies Approach
Gender in Emergencies: CARE Approach
Making humanitarian emergencies work for women, men, boys and girls requires more than tweaking the status quo. It requires a new approach to gender in emergencies. CARE has a four-step approach to Gender in Emergencies that involves gender mainstreaming and gender specific actions.
An introduction to the CARE approach to Gender in Emergencies is outlined here:

CARE's Gender in Emergencies Approach can be used at any point in the humanitarian project cycle. For example, Rapid Gender Analysis can be conducted as part of Emergency Preparedness. Minimum Commitments on Gender, Protection and Diversity for Sectors can be used as a training package to help humanitarian mainstream gender before and after a crisis has occurred.
Rapid Gender Analysis
Rapid Gender Analysis is a tool developed by CARE. It ensures humanitarians to have real-time sex and age disaggregated information, gender analysis, and practical insight into the effects of a crisis on women, men boys and girls. The

on Gender, Protection and Diversity are a tool meant to make gender sensitive and inclusive programming tangible, simple and practical. First used by country clusters, they became a key resource for the global WASH cluster that developed minimum commitments for the safety and dignity of affected people. CARE has been involved from the start in the piloting of the tool and is now working on widening its uptake
Women Lead in Emergencies
Women Lead in Emergencies is a pilot initiative from CARE to ensure women's voice influence every level of humanitarian decision-making. The Women Lead initiative works across humanitarian and development programming drawing on expertise from advocacy, localisation, gender, governance, social movements and girls' leaderships. Women Lead in Emergencies is a flexible four-step process to build women-led approaches whereby women's voices count
Gender in Monitoring and Evaluation
CARE and its partners need to find out if humanitarian action is leading to better programming for women, men, boys and girls. CARE has a multi-pronged approach to monitoring and evaluation including the CARE Gender Marker to review gender integration; gender in emergencies indicators; Gender in Crisis to look at the after-action review with a gender lens; and gender in emergencies evaluation.
