Gender Data

The international community allocates over $40 billion annually for crisis action in fragile and crisis-affected settings. As crises escalate worldwide, data-driven approaches can unlock significant gains for people and the planet through earlier, faster, more targeted, and dignified crisis action.

In these contexts, women, girls, and other marginalized groups face disproportionate impacts and systemic barriers due to entrenched gender inequalities. At the same time, the lack of gender-specific data hampers effective responses and meaningful participation of the most affected.

CRAF’d and partners are providing $3 million for gender data to fill this critical gap. We are particularly interested in initiatives that provide essential data that contribute to gender-responsive and transformative crisis actions.
