The purpose of the first edition of this handbook was to provide guidance to ensure that the needs, priorities and capacities of women, girls, men and boys are considered in all aspects of humanitarian response. This revised edition adds more recent thinking and lessons learned by the humanitarian community, and reflects the main challenges faced in ensuring that gender is adequately integrated into humanitarian planning and programming.
