Context

The military offensive launched by the Russian Federation against Ukraine on 24 February 2022 triggered one of the fastest-growing displacement and humanitarian crises on record. As of December 2023, over 6.3 million refugees from Ukraine are recorded globally and 5.9 million in Europe. As 90% of refugees from Ukraine are women and children, the nature of the refugee crisis in neighbouring countries has led to distinct protection risks. The war in Ukraine has become a regional crisis, demanding a regional response. As the humanitarian crises become more complex and challenging, it places bilateral and multilateral (UN) partners/organizations in a position to prioritize humanitarian assistance to meet the immediate needs of those impacted, and therefore a well-coordinated gender-responsive humanitarian response is critical more than ever. UN Women’s Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia (UN Women ECARO) works across the regional humanitarian and refugee response to ensure a gender-transformative response framework. UN Women ECARO is a leading agency through the Regional Gender Task Force (RGTF) on Gender in Humanitarian Action across the Regional Refugee Response, with a particular focus on Ukraine and neighboring countries, to mitigate the impact of the Ukraine crises on women and girls in the immediate and short-term response by placing them at the centre of the response.
