Rapid Gender Analysis Philippines: Metro Manila

The NCR Rapid Gender Assessment (NCR RGA) summarises the gendered impact of the pandemic by putting into perspective the experiences of women, men, girls, and boys from different urban poor communities in Metro Manila. It recognizes the distinct situation created by urban poverty alongside the COVID-19 crisis. The NCR RGA contributes to surfacing knowledge by providing
a space for dialogue and recognising the value of stories to understanding the COVID-19 situation.
The NCR RGA was an inter-agency initiative coordinated by CARE, with participating INGOs Oxfam Pilipinas, Plan International,
Asmae; local organizations ACCORD Inc., ChildHope, Kanlungan sa Er-ma Ministry Inc.; and individual volunteers from DFAT. Agencies served as, or recruited, locally-based interviewers with backgrounds in community organizing or social work. RGA and Kobo orientations, toolkit training and simulation, and regular debriefings were facilitated virtually by CARE to support interviewers in data collection. As this assessment was during enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila, face-to-face interviews and focus group discussions were not possible. Read More...

Building Resilience Among the Crisis Affected in Jordan

The Building Resilience among the Crisis Affected in Jordan project falls under CARE Jordan’s Urban
Protection Program that aims to provide labor market linkages and improved access to vulnerable Syrian
refugees and host community Jordanians in targeted urban areas in Jordan. The expected outcomes of
the project include:
1. Improved access to the labor market for the most vulnerable refugees.
2. Increased access for refugees and host communities to market linkages and economic
resilience.
3. Expanded opportunities for dignified employment for refugees in new sectors.
One of the two outcome indicators was achieved for the project. Outcome 1 indicator achieved a total
of 24.2% average-for which the target was 20%- for those who reported improved access to the labor
marker and when disaggregated by sex, males reported a slightly higher access at 26.1% while females
reported 20% on average. Read More...

A Decade of Results in Social Transformation for Urban Female Youth

In Ethiopia, ensuring that both women and girls participate in and provide leadership through the urbanization process
is key and can only be accomplished by removing economic and socio- cultural barriers. Evidence from a series of
independent studies funded by USAID, the World Bank and the UNDP in 2017-2018 clearly show that urbanization and
industrialization processes in Ethiopia must be gender responsive in order to deliver sustainable outcomes.
CARE Ethiopia would challenge this and state that it must be gender transformative. For CARE Ethiopia this means
ensuring that: urban girls and women are empowered to equally access economic and social opportunities and
services; institutions become more responsive to the specific and contextual needs and priorities of urban girls and
women and with a focus to understand the heterogeneity of women and girls and their specific vulnerabilities, and that
socio-cultural norms and practices should promote gender equality. CARE Ethiopia’s Theory of Change for resource poor
urban females (see Figure 2), moves beyond individual self-improvement, towards transforming the power dynamics
and structures that served historically to reinforce gendered inequalities in urban communities. Read More...

Ces actions font référence en Particulier au problème de dépôt des déchets solides dans les canaux de drainage des quartiers qui pénalisent leur hydraulicité;
2. Sensibiliser la population locale en matière d'hygiène et de santé Publique, contribuant à réduire les risques sanitaires liées à la gestion des eaux usées ;
3. Proposer des activités liées à 1a réduction des risques et catastrophes, utiles pour réagir efficacement lors des évènements d'inondations.
L’objectif visent la pérennisation des acquis dans le cadre du PIAA (investissements, renforcement de capacités, améliorations obtenues en matière d’assainissement), en contribuant à l’intensification des prises de responsabilité des structures communautaires et des collectivités, ainsi qu’à la prise de conscience citoyenne des individus, face aux problèmes d’inondation et de gestion des eaux usées au sein de 12 fokontany au niveau des quartiers vulnérables de la Commune Urbaine d’Antananarivo.
En ce début du projet, CARE procédera à une évaluation initiale qui sera dirigée par un évaluateur externe et utilisera des méthodes qualitatives et quantitatives afin d'établir les points de référence par rapport auxquels les progrès de tous les indicateurs seront mesurés. Il mettra également en évidence les opportunités et les défis potentiels de l'application des approches proposées pour mieux informer la mise en oeuvre du projet. Read More...
