Webinar Presentation: By Megan Denise Smith during the second Webinar on the 12th of March 2020. The Women’s Participation Project was piloted by IOM Cox’s Bazar in 2018 to better understand how women’s participation in governance structures in camps and camp-like settings could contribute to mitigating and reducing the risks of gender-based violence (GBV). To date, this pilot intervention has evolved as a best practice model that is currently being scaled up across the Rohingya refugee response. Megan Denise Smith, head of GBV programming at IOM Cox’s Bazar presented a snapshot of key lessons learned from the project, focusing on the achievements and challenges of the Women’s Committee in Leda Makeshift Camp as well as cross-cutting issues related to disability inclusion and social cohesion that can be applied to other similar interventions.
