UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.

Men, boys, women, and girls are differently affected by crises and have different needs, vulnerabilities, capacities and coping mechanisms. Women and girls, however, are disproportionately affected by crises due to compounded factors including the breakdown of key services which are critical to their health, protection, and recovery; weakened formal and informal protection mechanisms; disrupted livelihoods and limited access to resources; increased displacement; and power imbalances; while pre-existing inequalities, discrimination, and risks are by far exacerbated. With this background, UN Women seeks to strengthen the capacities of national and regional clusters, NGOs and CSOs on Gender in Humanitarian Action (GiHA) and protection from Sexual exploitation and Abuse (PSEA). In line with the localization agenda and UN Women’s mandate, the interventions will also include local women-led and Women right organizations (WLOs/WROs), gender and PSEA focal points, working in humanitarian action. To strengthen capacities, UN Women will hire a national consultant to deliver capacity building training for humanitarian responders. The trainings will primarily target responders who already have experience and serving GiHA and PSEA focal points who will be cascading the training to their respective clusters.


By conducting GiHA and PSEA training, UN Women will ensure that there is a reserve of skilled humanitarians with the skills and capacity to provide GiHA and PSEA trainings to focal points, clusters, cluster representatives and other actors working in complex and ever-changing humanitarian contexts in the country, and this training session will contribute to strengthening the GiHA Working group and PSEA Network at all levels and clusters in Ethiopia.
