Recognizing that the Hyogo Framework for Action, the global roadmap for disaster risk reduction from 2005-2015 recognizes both community participation and gender-sensitive disaster risk management, the international community is coming up with policy and practical guidelines on how to mainstream gender in disaster risk management for national governments. This training seeks to fill gaps in practical guidance in gender mainstreaming in disaster risk management at the local and community.
By the end of the training workshop, participants are expected to have:
- Enhanced awareness on gender issues and concerns in local and community based disaster risk management
- Increased skills and capabilities in integrating gender perspective in community based disaster risk management
- Ability to select and use gender analysis and participatory tools, methods and processes in community based risk assessment and risk management planning.
To meet these overall objectives, the training curriculum is divided into 5 key modules, excluding introductory and closing activities:
- Understanding Disasters and Community Based Disaster Risk Management
- Gender Perspective in CBDRM: Why Gender Sensitive CBDRM?
- Gender-Sensitive Risk Assessment
- Gender Sensitive Disaster Risk Management
- Gender Sensitive Disaster Risk Management Planning
- Themes:Community-based DRR, Disaster Risk Management, Gender, Risk Identification & Assessment
