Gender and Disaster Risk Management – Guidance Notes

Each note is part of a series of guidance notes on gender issues in disaster risk management (DRM). Grounded in extensive field work in Lao PDR and Vietnam, and drawing on the significant amount of material already available, these guidance notes are intended to be first stop, practical documents that can be used to design and implement gender dimensions into disaster risk management work across the EAP region. The target audience is World Bank staff, clients and development partners active in the fields of gender and DRM.
