UNFPA's Second Generation Humanitarian Strategy offers a vision and plan for mainstreaming humanitarian programming Fund-wide. It ensures that UNFPA's humanitarian action is well coordinated, timely, and scalable — before, during and after a crisis — and focuses on the mandated areas of reproductive health, population dynamics, gender equality, gender-based violence, and young people in crisis situations.
