Cambodian Red Cross Gender and Diversity Policy (in Khmer and English)

Cambodian Red Cross Gender and Diversity Policy (in Khmer and English)

Purpose
Cambodian Red Cross Society previously developed a gender policy, which was enacted in 2003. This current gender and diversity policy is the result of undertaking a consultative review process to update the 2003 gender policy whilst making it more inclusive of diversity considerations. The review process was conducted by CRC senior management and staff from both headquarter and branches.

This policy (in Khmer and English) establishes the basis for the Cambodian Red Cross to ensure that the gender and diversity differences are taken into account and systematically addressed in relation to core areas as defined in CRC Strategy 2011 – 2020, such as disaster management, health and health care in the community, promotion of the movement’s fundamental principles and humanitarian values, and organizational development and resource development.

Audience
Board members, senier management staff, staff, volunteers, youth volunteers, partners

Integrating Gender into Humanitarian Action: Good Practices from Asia 1

Purpose

This document provides case studies of initiatives that have been taken in Asia to promote equal treatment of all in society before, during and after disasters.

Overview

The document provides an overview of the following case studies: a disaster risk reduction (DRR) gender checklist prepared to ensure the implementation of gender inclusive and responsive DRR in the Philippines; women-friendly spaces set up in Pakistan in the aftermath of floods that hit Pakistan in 2010. These centres provide safe spaces for women affected by gender-based violence, providing psychosocial support as well as opportunities to participate in local support groups and receive information about gender-based violence; and promoting gender equality in disaster response in Nepal after the earthquake in 2015.

Page 6 contains a gender emergency checklist for Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Win-win Results: Gender Equality within Climate Change Programming

Win-win Results: Gender Equality within Climate Change Programming

Purpose

This document presents key points on lessons learned by CARE in its work in Vietnam to promote gender equality and increase communities’ resilience to climate change. It also provides examples and recommendations on how this can be achieved.

Overview

  • Understand resilience: common approaches and activities on gender in climate change tend to overlook differences between women and the factors apart from gender that influence women and men’s different abilities to make critical resilience decisions. Comprehending the specific context and lives of women and men is critical to support women’s leadership and voice and effectively transform negative gendered roles.
  • Address gender-based barriers: factors such as women’s heavy workloads, limited decision-making power, and unequal access to, and control over, resources can prevent women and men from adopting resilience strategies. Agricultural and non-agricultural climate resilient livelihood strategies will be less effective and can inadvertently reinforce negative gender norms if they do not tackle these barriers.
  • Adopt an integrated approach: both gender and climate change must be addressed simultaneously if increased resilience and gender equality are to be achieved.
  • 18-19 contain a framework for gender transformative adaptation in Vietnam.
