Women leadership in disaster risk management

This handbook re-examines the role of women in disaster risk management in the practical context of Bangladesh. In this handbook, an attempt was made to illustrate their achievements along with their risks in a very easy and communicable way. It proposes that if women’s disaster risk reduction techniques are incorporated in the mainstream, then disaster management will be more enriched and effective as a whole. The handbook has been divided into six chapters which are developed by following the disaster management model of Bangladesh.
