IASC Gender Capacity Project (GenCap) holds two-day retreat to review objectives

gencaplogo_full_0The IASC Gender Capacity Project (GenCap), hosted by OCHA’s Emergency Services Branch, held a two-day retreat, from 12-13 September.  The retreat brought together the Inter-Agency Steering Committee  to review the project’s overall objectives, with a view to drafting the new 2018-2021 strategy.

The project was established by the IASC in 2007 to strengthen gender mainstreaming and gender equality programming in humanitarian action through the deployment of Senior Gender Advisers at the national and regional level, as well as through specialized gender training. During the retreat, a new vision and mission statement for the project was drafted, linking into relevant policy frameworks and initatives, such as the IASC Gender Policy, the Agenda for Humanity and the New Way of Working.

The next phase in the strategy development process will be to present a draft strategy to the Technical Reference Group and donors for further consultations. The final version is expected in November before adoption by the Steering Committee.
