The Gender Minimum Standards
Action Against Hunger’s gender minimum standards were designed as measurable and verifiable standards, in line with the Gender Policy and Toolkit (2014). The standards enable all offices (headquarters or missions) within the network to be clear on what are the minimum and mandated actions to ensure gender is mainstreamed in Action Against Hunger. Every office across the Action Against Hunger network will become gender qualified once it has achieved each of the minimum standards and passed the qualification process.
As a network, the target that we have committed to is to have 75% of all offices having achieved the GMS by 2020.
If you have any questions or require support on the GMS, please reach out to the Gender Unit at firstname.lastname@example.org
The gender analysis
Gender analysis enables us to identify and understand the different roles, activities, needs, vulnerabilities and capacities of women and men of all ages. Understanding these differences and subsequently designing, implementing and monitoring our interventions according to the findings, is vital to providing effective and impactful programs.
Here are several documents to help you better understand why and how to perform a gender analysis!
If you have any questions or require support on gender analysis, please reach out to the Gender Unit at email@example.com
CONDUCTING A GENDER ANALYSIS
IN ACTION AGAINST HUNGER INTERNATIONAL
Manual, presentation, tip sheet and toolkit
Using inclusive language
Action Against Hunger strives to be inclusive while fighting hunger by understanding and considering the different needs, vulnerabilities and capacities of women and men of all ages. This goes beyond ensuring gender sensitive interventions; organizational processes and practices must also contribute to an enabling environment for gender equality. All publications, both those that are institutional and technical in nature, should use inclusive language and content to reflect Action Against Hunger’s commitment to gender equality and inclusion.
Here are a few documents to make sure the language we use
and the content we produce are gender-sensitive and inclusive:
Feedback & complaint mechanism
We at Action Against Hunger are accountable to the populations and communities we work with, as well as to the donors, governments and colleagues involved in our programs, and are responsible for the manner in which we conduct them and the results of our decisions and actions. As a result, it is essential that we listen to and act on the complaints and feedback of the populations we work with, and that we ensure that our feedback and complaints mechanisms (FCMs) are accessible and appropriate to the specific needs of all women and men of all ages. To this end, you will find below a tip sheet to help you ensure that your FCMs are gender sensitive.
Gender indicators and markers
The IASC have developed a Gender Marker to help you measure whether a project takes gender and age into account.
