Recently, ADHOC-CC participated in a unique initiative organised by UNICEF in Geneva.  The consultation drew the participation of over 100 representatives from UNICEF field offices, head-quarters in New York, and international and national NGOs from across the globe to discuss the ways in which already existing partnerships could be enhanced in order to realize children’s rights in emergencies. It was the first UNICEF consultation with NGOs that focused on this critical topic.

ADHOC-CC Takes Major Steps Forward Mainstreaming Gender

08 Feb, 2016
Advances include the arrival of our Sexual & Gender-based Violence (SGBV) Programme Officer Jorike Schmal, to advance and implement ADHOC-CC’s new SGBV Proposal
The ADHOC-CC SGBV Programme Proposal was drawn up following a major scoping exercise at four of ADHOC-CC’s country offices; Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, Sudan and Uganda.  The three year plan outlines country specific activities to better prevent and respond to SGBV, as well as mechanisms to integrate gender equality throughout all of ADHOC-CC’s programmes. ADHOC-CC’s SGBV Programme Officer is currently mobilising resources, establishing partnerships and developing proposals and policies to take efforts forward.    

ADHOC-CC Country Offices have also been active in gender matters throughout the year, highlighting issues on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (November 25tth) and during the following 16 Days of activism ‘Against Gender-based Violence’.  Further, participating in the ‘Gender Equality and GBV Programming Workshop’, held by IASC, provided an excellent opportunity for ADHOC-CC to familiarise itself with the available gender tools and to share knowledge and experience

ADHOC-CC recognises the heightened occurrence of SGBV in affected populations and thus the importance of addressing the issue effectively.  We look forward to making progress with our SGBV Programme in 2008 and invite all interested parties to contact Jorike for more information
