This year at DIHAD: Women and aid



Researchers at the Humanitarian Practice Network (HPN) at the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) in London have been thinking around these questions as part of a “Good Practice Review” for tackling GBV in humanitarian contexts.

“We commissioned this work because we felt there was a gap,” explained Wendy Fenton, HPN coordinator at the ODI's Humanitarian Policy Group.

“When we started looking at the issue and talking to people we realized that there wasn't even agreement about what GBV programming or prevention and response actually was. Even the terminology seems to be contested.”


They found a wide range of different concepts, terminologies and priorities, and the researchers said that in spite of the major advances in humanitarian and development programming, there was still a lack of firm consensus about how to define, prevent and respond to GBV.


 The HPN paper Preventing and responding to gender-based violence in humanitarian crises authored by Rebecca Holmes and Dharini Bhuvanendra, was published last month and will be presented this week at the 10th annual Dubai International Humanitarian Aid & Development (DIHAD) conference, which focuses on women and aid.
