This note looks at reasons to adopt a gender sensitive approach for community based disaster risk management (DRM). It also focuses on tools to support a gender conscious approach to community based DRM efforts. Grounded in extensive field work in Lao PDR and Vietnam, and drawing on the significant amount of material already available, these guidance notes are intended to be first stop, practical documents that can be used to design and implement gender dimensions into disaster risk management work across the East Asia and the Pacific region. The target audience is World Bank staff, clients and development partners active in the fields of gender and DRM.
