The Inter-Agency Humanitarian Evaluation (IAHE) on Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women and Girls (GEEWG) provides an independent assessment of the degree to which GEEWG has been implemented and integrated within IASC humanitarian responses since 2017. It identifies gaps, best practices and lessons learned to further integrate GEEWG. This IASC briefing was an opportunity to hear from evaluation team members and discuss key findings, including what worked well, what can be improved and recommendations for strengthening gender equality in humanitarian response.
