Gender-inclusive disaster risk management

Gender-inclusive disaster risk management

This paper focuses on the role of women in disaster risk management.

The ‘Gender Tip Sheet’ is meant as a reference guide for staff and consultants of the Asian Developing Bank and its ‘developing members’ for conceptualizing, designing, and implementing gender inclusive projects. It argues that women – with their extensive knowledge of communities, social roles of managing natural environmental resources, and caring responsibilities—increasingly play a critical role in disaster risk management. Its key message is that empowering women is the key to strengthening disaster resilience of communities.
