Humanitarian crises affect women and girls disproportionately. The overlapping of the natural human and man-made disasters such as floods, conflicts and wars impose additional burden on women, girls and elders. The historical conflicts and war in Sudan combined with the frequent occurrence of the natural disaster such as famine and the floods have altogether complicated the situation and the overall aspects of people’ lives. Women are the most vulnerable as they have been engaged in traditional subsistence economy, deprived the rights to access and control resources , and frequently expose to SGBV. Humanitarian crises exacerbate women’ s suffering and increase their vulnerability.
The interventions and the responses to the humanitarian crisis in Sudan vary across the geographical areas and are often focuses on providing food and shelter to the survivor of the crisis. The differential gender impacts of the humanitarian crises and the action taken to respond to the effects caused are yet to be documented due to the dearth of the literature on the gender and humanitarian action.
Effective, equitable and participatory humanitarian action cannot be achieved without understanding and responding to the specific needs, priorities and capacities of women, girls, men and boys in different age groups. Integrating gender equality also reinforces a human rights-based approach to humanitarian action which improves programming by respecting and protecting the universally recognized rights and dignities of every individual as a human being. Incorporating gender equality in humanitarian action therefore enhances the impact of humanitarian. strategies and interventions.
In this regard, UN Women which is the United Nations entity grounded in the vision of achieving gender equality and women empowerment is seeking to recruit a national consultant to undertake gender and humanitarian assessment in Sudan.
