Oxfam’s 2022 Gender in Emergencies (GiE) Standards are the key internal tool by which the charity sets out to realise its gender-specific humanitarian ambition in alignment with the 2022–25 GiE Strategy

The GiE Standards cover seven focus areas or ‘building blocks’ where Oxfam’s action needs to be enhanced to allow all actors involved in the work to achieve Oxfam’s humanitarian vision and goals. In this paper, each building block is further translated into a set of standards that Oxfam and partners aspire to during emergencies. The Standards are meant to unleash the potential for quality performance, while underpinning Oxfam’s determination for greater impact.
