CARE Jordan: She is a Humanitarian Report

CARE Jordan's She is a Humanitarian report assesses women’s participation in the humanitarian sector in Jordan during COVID-19. The report found that women’s involvement in decision-making mechanisms was weak. Particularly, female-led organizations were inadequately consulted and funded through the pandemic response, especially those providing GBV response services.

Further, the limited involvement of female-led organizations meant that their unique capabilities and expertise were not considered. Their communities missed their valuable contributions and networks. Despite their lack of inclusion, local women-led organizations were willing to shoulder significant responsibilities in responding to the pandemic. However, the unequal power dynamics between INGOs and community-based organisations indicate that the latter were deprived of sufficient funding to support their roles.
