Women's views from the frontline

Women's views from the frontline

The Huairou Commission initiated the action-research ‘Women’s Views from the Frontline’ to complement ‘Views from the Frontline’ to ensure that the voices of grassroots women are included in the civil society assessment of the local implementation of the Hyogo Framework of Action and to draw attention to grassroots women as key stakeholders in the effective implementation of the HFA. The action research engaged 23 grassroots women focused organizations in disaster prone communities from 13 countries, who are part of the Huairou Commission’s Global Campaign on Community Resilience, in Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia, Africa and the MENA region. ...Huairou member groups designed the action- research as an opportunity to educate a large constituency of grassroots women on HFA and support women to explore how they could utilize this policy tool to advance grassroots women’s efforts to reduce community vulnerability to disaster.
