AWR stands for Women at Risk, which is a program or designation that is often used in the context of refugee resettlement. AWR refers to women who are considered particularly vulnerable and face a heightened risk of persecution, violence, or harm due to their gender, such as survivors of gender-based violence, female-headed households, or women belonging to marginalized groups.

The Women at Risk designation recognizes the unique protection needs of these individuals and aims to prioritize their resettlement and provide them with appropriate support and services. It acknowledges the specific challenges and vulnerabilities faced by women in situations of displacement and seeks to ensure their safety and well-being throughout the resettlement process.
