Integrating Protection/GBV Mitigation into Livelihoods Programmes

2012 — By Women's Refugee Commission

The Women’s Refugee Commission has been researching and promoting how to make economic programs for displaced and returning populations both effective and safe. Our findings have shown that new economic opportunities can increase women’s and girls’ risk of gender-based violence (GBV) but that economic programmers can mitigate many of these risks by understanding how their programs expose women and girls to risk and then building protective elements, such as those detailed in this document, into their program design and implementation to mitigate these risks as much as possible.
