Executive Summary

The purpose of this review is to assess to what extent UNHCR, WFP, Unicef, and UNOCHA are aware of and integrate the standards of the Inter-Agency Standing Committee Gender Handbook in Humanitarian Action in its programming, and to what extent this Handbook is being used and implemented as a guiding tool in humanitarian operations. The review also briefly assesses the GenCap system and the cluster approach with regard to the implementation processes.
