This briefing paper looks at the importance of gender within Red Cross disaster management and offers some suggestions about how Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies might integrate gender into programs and strategies. This paper can be used as a tool during gender training, as an information sheet for staff and volunteers, at the governance level, and as part of education or advocacy activities within a Society.
