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

This report presents the findings of the Guyana Country Assessment for the Caribbean Risk Management Initiative (CRMI), which sought to establish the extent to which gender is mainstreamed into disaster risk management and mitigation practices of the institutions responsible for disaster management. Research was carried out between February and October 2008, and involved interviews with seven governmental, non-governmental and civil society agencies involved in disaster risk management, as well as a review of relevant documents. The main limitations of the study were access to key personnel in some of the main agencies and lack of sex-disaggregated data. The survey results are analysed in the context of gender differences in vulnerability and risks.
