Published Date

The Gender Standby Capacity Project (GenCap)is an Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) initiative that was established in 2007. Its mission is to strengthen inter-agency capacity and leadership to deliver on commitments to gender equality and women’s empowerment in humanitarian action.
