Title of the Position: Protection, Gender and Inclusion (PGI) Manager/Officer
Type of contract: Individual Contract (national)

Job Description:


Protection, Gender and Inclusion (PGI) describes the IFRC’s approach and way of working to address the causes, risks and consequences of violence, discrimination and exclusion in an integrated way. People affected by disasters can have very different experiences. A person’s sex, gender identity, age, physical ability, race, nationality and many other factors can influence how they are vulnerable to, and affected by disasters, conflicts and crises. They can also affect how they respond and recover. Emergencies can also make existing inequalities worse. This can be seen in the increase in incidences of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), violence against children and trafficking in human beings during and after emergencies.

–         Protection means addressing violence and keeping people safe from harm.

–         Gender and diversity is about addressing discrimination and understanding people’s different needs, risks and capacities

–         Inclusion means actively addressing exclusion by meaningfully involving and engaging excluded people in our work.
