Do No Harm and Gender: A Guidance Note

April 2018 | Michelle Garred, Charlotte Booth, Kiely Barnard-Webster and Ola Saleh

This Note aims to integrate gender sensitivity into the practice of Do No Harm by illustrating how Do No Harm analysis can be enriched through the application of a gender lens. The linkage is increasingly important: performing the analysis from a gender-sensitive perspective enhances the inclusivity of interventions, an awareness made clear by the strengthened commitment from DNH practitioners across humanitarian, development, human rights, and peace building sectors.

This CDA Guidance Note was made possible through the support and collaboration of Kvinna Till Kvinna. It was written by Michelle Garred, Charlotte Booth, Kiely Barnard-Webster, and Ola Saleh with major contributions from Nicole Goddard, Muzhda Azeez and Katarina Carlberg.
