Gender:

Gender- based behaviours and stereotypes about what men and women can and cannot do, or should and should not do, can further contribute to gender differences with devastating consequences. Yet, attention to gender is consistently one of the weakest areas of humanitarian response. Women and girls generally tend to be the main victims of natural disasters. Sphere India will focus on undertaking actions that encourage gender equality highlighting good practices from national and international experiences in gender sensitive programming.
