The war against Ukraine has led to the largest and fastest-growing refugee crisis in Europe and one of the biggest security threats since World War II. The ongoing violence and destruction not only affect civilians within its borders, but also lead to a large scale population movements that have spilled over into neighboring countries or even further away as more than seven million Ukrainians sought safety, protection, and assistance away from their country. The war has continued to generate displacement and large-scale new arrivals to refugee-hosting countries along with dramatic levels of suffering, shattering the lives of many Ukrainians.
UN Women is committed to ensuring that women and girls are not left behind in the war against Ukraine. UN Women's engagement with humanitarian and refugee response space is more critical than ever to ensure that humanitarian response prioritises women and girls’ voices and needs within the Regional Refugee Response. UN Women’s humanitarian strategy outlines two approaches; i) supporting the mainstreaming of gender in the coordination, planning, prioritization, financing of humanitarian response in the immediate aftermath of emergencies and humanitarian crises; and ii) contributing to long term recovery and protection of rights of women and girls in emergencies and protracted crises through the nexus approach.
UN Women Europe and Central Asia Regional Office (ECARO) is working across the regional humanitarian and refugee response architecture to ensure a gender-transformative response framework. Serving governments, CSOs, UN Country Teams/Humanitarian Country Teams (UNCTs/HCTs), and UN Women country offices, the Office provides policy advisory services; creates, and disseminates knowledge, evidence and data on gender equality; and advances coherence for gender in humanitarian action/refugee response, including through gender mainstreaming and the coordination of humanitarian/refugee response structures on gender.
