Guided by its Institutional Framework for Addressing Gender-Based Violence in Crises, IOM adopts an integrated approach that ensures that the full spectrum of causes, contributing factors and impacts of GBV, including CRSV, are addressed. Through community-based strategic interventions, IOM builds local capacities and promotes national ownership and leadership to safeguard the rights and recovery of survivors. In tandem, IOM fosters a longer-term approach focusing on resilience of persons at risk, identification of capacities and resources to self-protect, and ensuring that deep-rooted social, economic, and cultural shifts required to reduce CRSV move towards prevention. The Organization takes a survivor-centred approach to increase knowledge and understanding about rights to remedy and reparations among survivors, their representatives, civil society organizations, and national authorities. Through its extensive operational footprint, IOM is committed to mitigating risks of CRSV in all emergency response operations and transition and recovery programming; facilitating access to multisectoral support and assistance, including through direct service provision; and contributing to progressively transform the conditions that perpetuate CRSV
