Humanitarian Policy and Practice from a Gender Perspective Research Report


Despite important achievements made in Afghanistan in the last 15 years, particularly in relation to gender equality and the rights of women and girls, chronic insecurity and conflict, recurrent natural disasters, large-scale displacement of vulnerable groups and concerns about continuity of funding pose a significant threat to the sustainability and continuity of development and humanitarian programming. Given CARE’s interest in adapting to these programming challenges, CARE Afghanistan commissioned a study on the current humanitarian context in Afghanistan from a gender perspective. The objectives of the study are to identify recommendations on humanitarian policy and practice in Afghanistan from a gender perspective and to identify specific recommendations for CARE on how to improve its gender mainstreaming in humanitarian assistance, emergency response and DRR programming.

Final evaluation of the FFP programme

The Foundations For Peace (FFP) programme received a grant of EUR 7,602,035 under the Reconstruction Tender from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The programme was implemented in Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia1 during 1 July 2012 - 30 June 2016.

The nature of the FFP programme differed per country as the outcomes were adapted to fit the local country contexts.
