With the increasing number of complex and protracted emergencies, more people than ever are vulnerable and need humanitarian support.
Natural disasters, crises, conflicts and pandemics have a disproportionate effect on women and children living in extreme poverty. They increase the likelihood of women and children's human rights violations.
To address this, we focus on cultivating women's leadership in emergencies. This is a central pillar of our human rights-based approach. We empower women, helping them to play an active role in humanitarian responses.
