Gender and community security

This report explores the role of gender in community security programmes and looks at what has worked and what hasn’t in a range of contexts: Bangladesh, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, South Sudan and Yemen. Specifically it addresses three core questions:

  • How can community security programming be made more gender-sensitive?
  • Does taking a gender-sensitive approach to community security programming improve its outcomes?
  • How effective are community security approaches in preventing and reducing gender-based violence?
