Gender in Disaster Risk Reduction - Bangkok, Thailand @ ADPC Academy

In disasters, the needs of women, girls, boys and men are different and distinct. Scientific research demonstrates how women are disproportionally affected by natural disaster events. More marginalized populations, including women, tend to be disproportionally and negatively impacted when natural disasters happen. The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR), Agency for Humanity, and the Sustainable Development Goals, all commit to reaching the most vulnerable women, girls, boys, and men as well as work upon the needs of diverse and at-risk groups in situations of disaster vulnerability and risk. SFDRR also states that women and their participation are critical to effectively managing the disaster risk. The pledge to leave no one behind is the central theme of the 2030 Agenda and places a new obligation on our commitment to reach and transform the lives of those who are at most risk of being left behind.

This training will provide an introduction on how to operationalize gender equality into programming for disaster risk reduction. The training will develop skills and competencies in disaster risk reduction using a gender lens throughout the program management cycle, from assessment, analysis, planning to implementation, monitoring and evaluation. The training is targeting persons who manage projects or programs related to disaster risk reduction, climate change, and humanitarian action and would like to ensure a gender perspective integrated into their work.
