GIZ & ODI Lab Debate - European Development Day 2018 - Does shock-sensitive social protection promote gender equality?
The role of social protection in responding to emergencies has rapidly grown over the last few years, with increasingly innovative and adaptive responses to large-scale emergencies.
At the same time, there has also been increased attention to the promotion of gender equality and women’s empowerment in social protection policy and programming, as well as in emergency response programming. However, applying a gender analysis to shock-sensitive social protection has been missing, leaving a major gap in terms of informing programme design and implementation, with potentially negative effects on outcomes for women and girls.
This session of the 2018 European Development Day (EDD) organised by ODI and GIZ program will discuss:
Where is the issue of gender equality and women/girls’ empowerment in shock-sensitive social protection debates, policy and programming?
It will also bring insights on why this debate has been missing and how this can be addressed.
