Tropical Cyclone Gita Kingdom of Tonga Rapid Gender Analysis
This rapid gender analysis (RGA) is designed to provide initial information about gender roles, responsibilities, capacities and vulnerabilities of women, men, girls and boys, SOGIE and other marginalised people prior to and after TC Gita. It provides a snapshot of the different needs, capacities and coping strategies of particular groups in the affected communities. Taking into consideration the tight time-frame, rapidly changing context and limited information, this analysis seeks to understand how different groups might be impacted by the disaster and provide practical programming and operational recommendations to meet differing needs, ensure we ‘do no harm’ and wherever feasible, identify windows of opportunity to advance gender equality.
Various findings and recommendations outlined in the Safety and Protection Cluster Initial Assessment and Draft Response Plan are reiterated here to advocate for attention to priority concerns, however most are specific to CARE’s expected areas of programming namely shelter – integrated with WASH, and food security and livelihoods. It is also hoped the information contained in this rapid gender analysis will also be relevant to a range of other stakeholders and partners supporting the TC Gita response.
