This report examines the implementation of “The Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Guidelines for Gender Based Violence in Humanitarian settings”, in the context of the Syrian Crisis, which started in 2011. The evaluation was conducted in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KR-I), Jordan, Lebanon and Northern Syria. The evaluation was in response to many assessment reports that highlighted risks facing refugee women and girls, where sexual exploitation, harassment and early marriage where among the most reported cases. The report examines if GBV prevention measures are incorporated in programmes across three humanitarian sectors: Shelter, Health and water, and Sanitation and hygiene (WASH).
