What is the humanitarian need being addressed?

The GBV Minimum Standards Task Team has developed indicators to track implementation of 16 Minimum Standards. These define what humanitarian agencies need to achieve to prevent and respond to GBV and deliver quality services. However, consultations with end-users in the sector indicate barriers remain that prevent the adoption of the new indicators.

To address this, the team will seek to improve the usability of the MS indicators through an iterative, human-centred design approach with local actors to develop and prototype data collection and visualisation tools enabling agencies to collect, analyse and use data to inform decision-making and track progress against the Minimum Standards.

What is the innovative solution and how will it improve existing humanitarian practice?

While global GBV guidance documents have been developed, there remains a gap between expectations and design processes. This creates a barrier to iterative feedback from end-users to ensure accessibility across varying human, financial, and technical resource capacities.

Building on the learning from the inter-agency task team, GWI will test prototypes to arrive at contextualised and user-friendly data collection tools and analysis processes.

By working directly with end-users responsible for collecting data, the project will help to bridge the gap between what should be collected according to the GBV Minimum Standards and field realities of how this can be ethically and systematically done. Wherever possible the project will use technological solutions to reduce challenges related to data collection, data analysis and visualisation of results.

What are the expected outcomes?

The expected outcome of this project is the development of an M&E framework and associated data collection tools to support agencies to roll-out their implementation of the GBV Minimum Standards.
