    Report on Sex and Age Disaggregated Data (SADD): If the data is not specific about the impact of our work on different groups of people, women, girls, boys, men, older people or disabled, it is difficult to know the specific needs of these people have been met. The report "Sex and Age Matter: Improving Humanitarian Response in Emergencies" shows us clearly that the humanitarian community has not invested enough in collecting and using sex and age disaggregated data to inform our programming. Find the Report here, and the executive summary in French here.

    The Impact of Armed Conflicts on Women
    "Men, women, boys and girls experience conflicts in different ways. Women often take over non-traditional roles brought on by the changes and transformations during the conflicts that render them both victims and actors. On the one hand, war is a burden for women and girls including gender-based and sexual violence (rape as a weapon of war), the spread of HIV/AIDS, increased vulnerability, lack of mobility and the use of women as sexual slaves by soldiers. On the other hand, women also get involved in the conflict as combatants, by taking take care of extended families in extremely adverse circumstances and by developing coping mechanisms to take over non-traditional occupations which enables them to gain exposure outside the private sphere." Excerpt from the UNDP Gender manual
    New Report:Report: May 2014
    This new CARE report seeks to shed light on the very difficult conditions shouldered by women and girls in the conflict-stricken country of South Sudan; not only as targeted victims of community-based and ethnic violence, but also facing extreme the hardship and abuse resulting from forced displacement, extremely high levels of poverty, and aggravated incidence of poor health, malnutrition and psychosocial stress amongst others in states marked by intense fighting and high concentration of affected civilians. Rape, sexual, physical and psycho-logical violence have proven to be regretful side-effects of violent conflict. In South Sudan, such grave abuses occur in a context where routine services, livelihoods strategies, key assets and protection systems have been disrupted or completely shattered. The denial of basic human rights, such as the right to life, safety and security of the person, health, shelter and education has made women and girls, among other social groups, particularly vulnerable to suffering diversified forms of violence, and/or enduring them as a survival routine. The new CARE International report calls on donor governments and humanitarian actors on the ground to prioritize key actions to further respond and prevent GBV.

    Rape as a Weapon of War
    Sexual violence during war is a common feature however, the extent and manner in which it is perpertrated differs between armed conflicts and in some cases within. During conflicts, sexual violence can take the forms of individual and gang rapes, rape-shooting, rape stabbing combinations, forced prostitution, sexual abuse, genital mutilation and sterilisation. It is necessary to have a comprehensive understanding of the principal motivations for sexual violence both in a general sense and in relation to a given context in order to develop comprehensive and effective strategies for prevention and response. What are the motivations for sexual violence in war? Is there a common framework or distinct categories to define the various reasons why rape and other forms of sexual violence are carried out against civilians in conflict? Once reasons for rape and other forms of sexual violence are known will this assist in developing interventions that could be carried out to either prevent or mitigate these crimes?

    ...
    Rapid Gender Analysis (RGA) provides information about the different needs, capacities and coping strategies of women, men, boys and girls in a crisis situation. It does this in part by examining the relationships between women, men, boys and girls. An RGA is built up progressively, providing an initial but incomplete analysis of gender relations in an emergency, and links to more in-depth Gender and Power Analysis using the CARE Good Practice Framework. An RGA is also used to make recommendations to ensure that CARE comprehensively meets the needs of everyone involved in the crisis.

    demystifying gender and diversity programming
    The minimum commitments 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.
