The toolkit was developed in Ethiopia, Burundi, Jordan and the Northern Caucasus in the Russian Federation -with the input and participation of persons with disabilities, as well as GBV practitioners over the course of a joint project of the Women's Refugee Commission and IRC. The tools are designed to complement existing guidelines, protocols and tools for GBV prevention and response, and should not be used in isolation from these. GBV practitioners are encouraged to adapt the tools to their individual programs and contexts, and to integrate pieces into standard GBV tools and resources.
We would like to highlight Tool 4: Gender-based violence and disability: A training module for GBV practitioners in humanitarian settings. This training module is designed to support GBV practitioners to understand the intersections between disability, gender, and violence in the communities where they work, and to develop strategies to improve the inclusion of persons with disabilities in GBV prevention and response programming.
