This manual provides an overview of the key issues related to gender-based violence (GBV) in the context of WFP’s operations. It seeks to guide staff and partners so they can better identify and respond to GBV risks related to hunger and nutrition and to WFP programmes.

In particular, the guidance aims to identify practical steps to ensure that WFP staff are able to:

  • Understand what GBV means;
  • Understand how GBV is relevant to WFP;
  • Conduct GBV analysis in order to identify GBV-related threats, vulnerabilities, capacities, gaps and opportunities;
  • Apply specific measures to prevent, mitigate and respond to GBV threats within the context of WFP’s activities;
  • Identify opportunities to address GBV through food assistance, thereby achieving a dual objective of food security and protection;
  • Monitor GBV risks in the operational context;
  • Refer GBV survivors to appropriate service providers in a safe and ethical way; and
  • Manage GBV case reporting in a safe and ethical way.
