Emergencies exacerbate existing gender inequalities, and the incidence of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), violence against children and trafficking in human beings often increase during and after emergencies. These standards are to be used by all Red Cross and Red Crescent staff and volunteers, and as a key reference for partners and other stakeholders interested in the IFRC’s approach to Protection, Gender and Inclusion (PGI) issues.
