Enhancing Gender Visibility in Disaster Risk Management and Climate Change in the Caribbean: Country Assessment Report for The Dominican Republic

This report presents the results of the country assessment of the Dominican Republic. It is based on data collected from a field visit and consultations with eight institutions as well as a review of relevant literature. The latter helped in providing a socio-economic, political and environmental overview of the country, to identify pre-existing vulnerabilities associated with gender inequalities that make both males and females in various contexts at risk for disasters, as well as the geographic factors that increase the vulnerabilities of some areas of the country to hazards. The review also provided more detailed information on the institutions and their programmes.
