Gender and Shelter
This briefing paper looks at the importance of gender within Red Cross programs and services and offers some suggestions about how Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies might better integrate gender into shelter programs.
This paper can be used as a tool during gender training, as an information sheet for staff and volunteers, at the governance level, and as part of education and advocacy activities within a Society.
