In the thick of it: Women’s role in disaster risk reduction

20 Mar 2017, UNDP Nepal

There is an increasing need for women and girls to be at the core of disaster risk reduction, given that they often bear the brunt of climate change and hazards such as storms and floods. Participation in decision making, in resource management, access to social protection measures, education and health, as well as access to early warning should be promoted.
