The present report was commissioned by CARE International in Turkey to better understand the different livelihood related needs, priorities, and resources of women, men, girls, and boys in northern Syria, to identify specific challenges and opportunities for women and girls, to better understand livelihood-related protection risks, and to develop a sense of possible future trends with regards to gender relations and women’s economic participation. The ultimate goal is to enhance livelihoods-related programming and to ensure that women, men, girls, and boys are provided with equal access and opportunities.
