Making it count: integrating gender in climate change and Disaster Risk Reduction

This guide gives suggestions on how to practically address gender and women’s empowerment in climate change and disaster risk reduction (DRR) projects, or projects which have integrated climate change and DRR considerations. It has a focus on Vietnam.

It has been developed for use during design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of climate change and disaster risk reduction activities. The guide highlights that the impacts of climate change and natural hazards are felt nationwide across Vietnam, but the specific effects of these issues affect women and men differently. The different roles that men and women occupy in society also influence the nature and capacity of their involvement in climate change adaptation and DRR.
