As a whole, the 16 Minimum Standards define what agencies working on specialized GBV programming need to achieve to prevent and respond to GBV, and deliver multisectoral services. The objective of the Minimum Standards is to establish a common understanding of what constitutes minimum GBV prevention and response programming in emergencies. “Minimum” means “of adequate quality”; for the purposes of this resource, adequate quality means (1) reflecting good practice and (2) not causing harm. As such, each Standard in this resource represents common agreement on what needs to be achieved for that specific programmatic element to be of adequate quality. When a GBV programme actor decides to implement a programmatic element outlined in the Standards, that intervention must be implemented according to the Standard at a minimum. The actions outlined in these Minimum Standards apply to actors working to deliver GBV-specialized programming and coordination across humanitarian crises. The standards are universal; they are relevant for all emergency contexts, although they must be contextualized (see “Applying the Minimum Standards in Context” below). (From the document).

The objective of the Minimum Standards is to establish a common understanding of what constitutes minimum GBV prevention and response programming in emergencies.
“Minimum” means “of adequate quality”; for the purposes of this resource, adequate quality means (1) reflecting good practice and (2) not causing harm. As such, each Standard
in this resource represents common agreement on what needs to be achieved for that specific programmatic element to be of adequate quality. When a GBV programme actor decides
to implement a programmatic element outlined in the Standards, that intervention must be implemented according to the Standard at a minimum.

The actions outlined in these Minimum Standards apply to actors working to deliver GBV-specialized programming and coordination across humanitarian crises. The standards
are universal; they are relevant for all emergency contexts, although they must be contextualized (see “Applying the Minimum Standards in Context” below). (From the document). Record #7530
