Flood early warning systems leave women vulnerable

9 Feb 2017, Glacier Hub

For Glacier lake outburst floods (GLOFs) early warning systems (EWS) to be effective, gender needs to be prioritized. In Bhutan, the social structure leaves women dependent on men for receiving disaster information. Gender-inclusive EWS ensures that women receive early warnings and that they participate in decision-making processes.
