Flood early warning systems from a gender lens

13 Jul 2017, Practical Action

Gender has proven to affect the efficiency of early warning systems (EWS) for floods, as women are disproportionately affected. Despite this, gender dynamics of EWS are often neglected by organisations and governments. EWS should, therefore, be considered in a gender framework rather than be defined as a technical process.
