The “Pocket Guide” resource package V2.0 is a joint GBV Guidelines and GBV AoR resource designed to provide all humanitarian practitioners with concrete information on how to support a survivor of gender-based violence who disclosed to you in a context where there is no gender-based violence actor (including a referral pathway or GBV focal point) available in your area. The resource package uses global standards on providing basic support and information to survivors of GBV without doing further harm. We encourage adaptation of this resource to your local context with the support of a GBV specialist.
This document consolidates the “essential actions and minimum commitments” tables from the comprehensive Guidelines on Integrating Gender-based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Action (“GBV Guidelines”) and each sector-specific Thematic Area Guide (TAG) into one document that can be easily downloaded and/or printed to use as a quick reference tool during the earliest stages of acute emergency response. It is meant to support, but not replace, the comprehensive Guidelines and sector-specific TAGs. These tables provide key recommendations for each thematic area. The sector-specific minimum commitments appear in bold.

These Best Practice Guidelines were developed by Oxfam under UNHCR’s “Waste to Value” Project, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Where required, UNHCR and WASH actors should work together to develop a country level refugee WASH strategy document that clearly describes the refugee context and the baseline WASH situation, along with short, medium and long-term strategies for each of the WASH sub-sectors. This template can be used to help produce a short and concise Country level WASH Strategy. It includes a phased approach, HR requirements and site-level Operational Plans.
