The Women Friendly Disaster Management (WFDM) Group, together with UN Women, has supported the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in implementing the Project, ‘People to People Support for Building Community Resilience through Recovery and Reconstruction in Nepal’. Along this line, the GESI Checklist for the Multipurpose Community Centre (MPCC) was developed with technical assistance from WFDM and UN Women, through a series of consultations with municipality-level stakeholders in seven municipalities of Province 3.
MPCC is a service centre dedicated to the people impacted by disasters. In every humanitarian crisis, women and girls are affected differently than men and boys, and vulnerabilities are often exacerbated by other factors, such as age, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity, caste, ethnicity or religion. It is important that these excluded and vulnerable groups have equal opportunities and benefits in times of disasters, and for that, they need targeted assistance.
