Mine Action And Gender-Based Violence

As one of the Areas of Responsibility, Gender-Based Violence Area of Responsibility (GBV AoR) works collectively to improve the effectiveness and accountability of humanitarian response for the prevention, risk mitigation and response to all forms of gender-based violence, to ensure that the capacity of survivors is reinforced and that prevention efforts are effectively employed to address underlying gender inequality. GBV is a widespread international public health and human rights issue. Together with the IASC, the Mine Action AoR has developed a guide to help mine action actors integrate Gender-Based Violence interventions in their work.  It is available in Arabic, English, French and Spanish.
