  • Ensure meaningful access, safety and dignity in humanitarian aid. The following elements must be taken into account in all humanitarian activities and equal participation of women, girls, boys and men in livelihoods programming.

Key Responsibilities
Safety and dignity, and avoid causing harm:

  • prevent and minimize as much as possible any unintended negative effects of the intervention which can increase people’s vulnerability to both physical and psychosocial risks:
  • Ensures the communities reaching the food distribution easily (e.g. walking distance)
  • Make sure the food distribution points far from military installations or any other risks (this can also be part of observations)
  • Ensure the community feel that everyone is properly informed about the locations and the timing of the food/ NFI distribution.
  • Ensure there is the drinking water at the site
  • Ensure there is gendered latrines
  • Ensure Shade in place for protection of the project participants

Meaningful Access:

  • arrange for people’s access to assistance and services – in proportion to need and without any barriers (e.g. discrimination).
  • Pay special attention to individuals and groups who may be particularly vulnerable or have difficulty accessing assistance and services.


  • set-up appropriate mechanisms through which affected populations can measure the adequacy of interventions, and address concerns and complaints.

Participation and Empowerment:

  • support the development of self-protection capacities and assist people to claim their rights, including not exclusively – the rights to shelter, food, water and sanitation, health, and education.

Livelihood responsibility:

  • Ensure the meaningful participation of women and girls rather than mere token representation. For example, supporting women’s farming collectives or carrying out quick orientation programmes for women prior to skills training can be a useful strategy

  • Ensure Inclusion of marginalized populations in programme activities (e.g. the disabled, elderly persons, young married girls and victims of gender-based violence). For example, a useful strategy is to establish mutual referral systems among agencies to direct gender-based violence survivors to the right place for livelihood assistance.
  • Ensure women and men are involved in planning and implementing all livelihood programmes.
