Geographically, the gender analysis study will be carried out in both Arua district in Rhino Camp Sub-county and Odobu, Ofua and Ocea refugee settlement zones and in Yumbe district specifically carried in in Bidibidi settlement - Zone 1 and Romogi Sub County.

  • Analyze the gender-specific differences regarding the socio-economic situation within and between refugees settlements and host communities: Poverty situation, income distribution, demographic situation, division of labour with regard to the provision and access to services and resources, agricultural production and marketing;

  • Analyze the project documents and actual practice in terms of gender equality such as access of women & girls to activities, allocation of benefits and availability of gender-disaggregated data as well as the quality of gender mainstreaming

  • Identify key barriers to achieving gender equality (including legislative environment, institutional capacity, political will, social norms, multiple discriminations, etc.)

  • Assess staff capacity building needs to further the gender agenda pivotal in the project implementation;

  • Assess the prevalence and/or risk for sexual exploitation and abuse and sexual harassment in the project area and identify/recommend measures for prevention and response including a mapping of local response mechanism
