Funding for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women and Girls in Humanitarian Programming

Evidence shows that women and girls are disproportionately impacted by disasters and conflict. These crises affect their life expectancy, education, maternal health, livelihoods, nutrition, as well as the levels of violence they experience. At the same time, women are often first responders and to humanitarian crises, though they are often portrayed solely as victims and passive beneficiaries of aid. Despite this, there is a significant lack of data on the global amount of funding required, requested and received for programming for women and girls.

Based on global desk research as well as field studies, this report provides insight on current trends in funding for programming for women and girls.
