Despite the scope and severity of the problem, GBV in humanitarian contexts is vastly underreported and current programming to prevent and respond to GBV cases is insufficient. Moreover, the role of all humanitarian practitioners, regardless of their expertise in gender and GBV, is increasingly critical in identifying GBV risks and referring the survivors to essential services. Through Integration of GBV prevention and management in Disaster Management, this document seeks to provide humanitarian actors in Indonesia an opportunity to learn what steps to take to prevent and respond to GBV cases in disaster preparedness, response, and recovery settings. The document consists of step-by-step guidance and useful checklists to ensure integration of gender perspectives in preventing and addressing GBV in every aspect of disaster management, including needs assessment, strategic planning, coordination, resource mobilization, implementation, participation, and monitoring.
