Top Highlights

  • Natural disasters are increasingly causing displacements globally, and such negative impacts of climate change are expected to increase exponentially
  • For certain geographical contexts where com- munities are routinely exposed to severe natural disasters as well as armed conflicts, the death and displacement they therefore experience are com- pounded, multiple, and increasingly normalize
  • A report by the UN Population Fund (UNFPA 2015) noted that 25 percent of the more than 100 million displaced people in need of human- itarian assistance are women and girls, aged fifteen to forty-nine, whose dis- tinct sexual and reproductive rights are threatened
  • Although there has been remarkable progress in targeting humanitarian services to women and girls over the past decade, large gaps remain in trans- formative actions beyond the crisis or emergency phase to address gender in- equalities and in the gender-equitable distribution of resources during and after crises (UNFPA 2015; UNGA 2016a)
  • Bodily autonomy and integrity, especially for women and girls in crisis situations, is both an outcome of addressing preex- isting structural gendered inequalities and a precondition for meaningful po- litical and economic participation in the aftermath of any crisis
