Gender in Emergencies: Humanitarian emergencies impact women, men, boys and girls in different ways and can rapidly change their needs and vulnerabilities. Steps to address the harm emergencies cause need to appropriately understand and respond to these differences. Sex and age disaggregated data (SADD) and gender and generational analysis of this data after the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami in Indonesia helped to understand the effects of this natural disaster. It found that two-thirds of those who died were female and in some villages all dead were females. Focus group studies that allowed safe spaces for women to voice their concerns found that among displaced families a significantly higher proportion of female headed-households were living among villages and towns and not in displaced camps, in part due to women being widowed and believing the camps were unsafe for them and their family. Data and analysis of this data that accounted for gendered changes from prior to the emergency showed an increase in early marriages and early high-risk pregnancies–girls attracted or pushed into early marriage–as the men did not have the skills to care for themselves or their remaining children. Understanding and gendered differences is essential to strengthening humanitarian responses deliver more targeted evidence-based assistance and providing programming that is more specific and effective; not doing so can and has led to interventions being misguided, failing and has even put vulnerable groups at further risk.

Having key experts available at the onset of a crisis helps with planning for information needs and understanding how this information will be used to inform program decisions. Identifying, accounting and responding for gendered differences helps strengthen humanitarian responses deliver evidence and needs- driven assistance more effectively and efficiently; not doing so can and has led to interventions being misguided, failing and has even put vulnerable groups at further risk.
