Service Delivery in all Stages of a Conflict
Genderforce will deliver a complete portfolio of services with regards to fighting and preventing acts of Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) in conflict and post-conflict situations.
Below are some examples of services that Genderforce can deliver. During project development we always follow our Operational Planning model to find a suitable solution using a mix of different services options.
In our planning, conduct and evaluation of our operations we always include local partners to ensure local ownership and that Genderforce will support ongoing efforts rather than to duplicate or create parallel projects.
- Support Key Policy Makers on dealing with the implementation of the relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions regarding SGBV to actors such as the UN, NATO, EU, AU, other international organizations, national governments and the civil society including the private sector.
- Provide guidance and advice to governments on the implementation of gender perspectives as an integrated part of a structured approach to conflict resolution and nation building activities.
- Explain the economic consequences of an insecure environment for women and girls in conflict and post-conflict areas.
- Assist NGOs and GOs with information in conflict situations where SGBV is widely or systematically employed against civilians; and provide implementation proposals aimed at minimizing the susceptibility of women and girls to such violence.
- Assist in the development of effective guidelines and strategies to enhance the ability of relevant United Nations peacekeeping operations with other stakeholders to protect civilians, including women and girls (and also men and boys), from all forms of SGBV.
Services During Conflicts
- When advice and consultations are not enough, or when the threat level so requires, Genderforce will provide an effective response to conflict situations where women, including their children and families, face severe threats.
- Our most important operational capability is the provision of trained security operators with skills to work with an integrated gender perspective in all phases. This includes the ability to conduct a gender analysis in the planning and execution of providing security to vulnerable groups.
- In fragile and often tense situations during the aftermath of a conflict, we can provide monitoring and evaluation services that provides analysis and warning signals of upcoming changes of the security situation.
- Provision of mentoring and training, to often newly established, security sector actors.
