Passport to Mainstreaming a Gender Perspective in Emergency Programmes

Key Analytical Questions for Designing Gender-Sensitive Humanitarian Interventions

The "Passport to Mainstreaming a Gender Perspective in Emergency Programmes - Key Analytical Questions for Designing Gender-Sensitive Humanitarian Interventions" was written jointly by FAO and the World Food Program (WFP) for humanitarian officers who work directly with local communities in emergency situations, and also for insiders such as community organizers and leaders of local groups and institutions. It consists of key questions to be asked in an emergency situation for data collection to help guide the design of emergency interventions so that they will be sensitive to gender differences.

The basic questions are broad and provide a useful framework for any emergency worker to gain a full understanding of the emergency situation at the field, intermediate and macro levels.

The main purpose of the Passport is to support humanitarian agencies in mainstreaming a gender perspective in the planning and implementation of emergency programmes through a participatory approach.
