Emergency responses to gender-related rights violations: The Rapid Response Fund in Kenya
This case study examines the relevance and impact of the Rapid Response Fund in Kenya to help inform the future model of the fund.
This case study examines the relevance and impact of the Rapid Response Fund in Kenya to help assess whether future in-country emergency response funds in Kenya and elsewhere are viable. It reviews the context of responses to sexual and gender-based violence in Kenya, grant holders’ experience of accessing the Rapid Response Fund, and what marginalised communities need to be able to effectively prevent and respond to gender-based rights violations. It also provides recommendations for adapting the Rapid Response Fund to a de-centralised, in-country emergency response mechanism.
