What We Do

The GBV AoR works to promote a comprehensive and coordinated approach to programming that prevents and responds to GBV.  The GBV AoR accomplishes this through four key areas of work:

  • Supporting lifesaving services operating in humanitarian settings
  • Building knowledge and capacity on prevention of and response to GBV
  • Establishing norms and standards
  • Advocating for increased action, research, and accountability at global and local levels

The AoR assists in standardizing approaches to GBV coordination and response in the field through the release of the new IASC-endorsed GBV guidelines. The AoR has created a Capacity-Building Strategy to encourage a strengthening of GBV capacity in the field, an Advocacy Handbook to support global and local level advocacy efforts, and are active participants in the Call to Action. The AoR helps to build capacity across humanitarian sectors and clusters at a regional and country level, with a focus on GBV sub-cluster coordination capacity building and GBV prevention and response programming. Additionally, the AoR feeds into global processes like the World Humanitarian Summit.

The GBV AoR is premised on the understanding that all clusters and actors must take action to address GBV. GBV AoR members participate in and collaborate with other cluster lead agencies to ensure that GBV considerations are mainstreamed in the humanitarian response and linked with other cross-cutting issues.
