Community adaptation and risk reduction governance series, issue 2, December 2011:

This edition considers gender issues after disaster in Nias Island, North Sumatra, Indonesia, such as the Indian Ocean tsunami on 24 December 2004 and the 28 March 2005 earthquakes. It calls for further exploration of the disaster response and recovery projects and community level disaster risk reduction, which could facilitate changes in gender relation in alleviating the vulnerability of women. The overall paper analyses the perspectives of both women and men in rural and urban setting regarding their roles in post disaster settings in three districts in North Sumatra, Indonesia.
