The Gender Standby Capacity Project (GenCap) is an Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) initiative launched in 2007 with the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC). The GenCap Project seeks to strengthen the capacity and leadership of humanitarian actors to undertake gender-equality programming, ensuring the distinct needs of women, girls, boys, and men of all ages are met in the humanitarian response, whether at the global, regional, or country level. GenCap Advisers are deployed to support Humanitarian Coordinators, Humanitarian Country Teams, UN agencies, and to engage with intercluster groups, cluster leads, NGOs, and governments.
