Women's Rights in Emergencies: Meta-evaluation



Executive Summary:

ActionAid (AA) is an international agency working to promote the rights of women and men in 45 countries. AA sees emergencies as part of the cycle of rights denial that causes poverty. It seeks to respond to immediate needs while also using these crises to shift power relationships in favour of the poorest and most excluded – especially women. Advancing women’s rights in emergencies, and specifically advancing women’s leadership in preparedness, response and recovery is a core policy commitment for AA and a signature of its emergency response approach.

The purpose of this review is to identify good practices, challenges and areas for further learning to improve AA’s work to promote women’s rights and protection in emergencies. The review, designed by AA as a meta-evaluation, examines the women’s rights aspects of AA’s emergency response programs as documented in evaluations over the period 2008 to 2015, complemented by additional data analysis, case study review and key stakeholder interviews.
