The platform contains practical information, case studies, and sector-by-sector guidance on mainstreaming and integrating gender aspects across all stages of the Humanitarian Programme Cycle.

The site is fully navigable, and inclusive of cross references, footnotes, annexes and glossary definitions. It is available in English, French, Spanish and Arabic.

The online updated IASC Gender Handbook will prove to be a powerful resource in ensuring that gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls are adequately integrated into all coordinated humanitarian strategies.
