Gender equality in emergencies programme insights

Source(s):  Oxfam - Great Britain (Oxfam GB)

To mark International day for Disaster Risk reduction (IDDR) 2012, Oxfam has published a new collection of programme insights papers bringing together experiences, lessons and good practice from Oxfam and its partners work in emergencies and on disaster risk reduction (DRR). As the number and complexity of hazards and disasters are increasing rapidly, and with the ample evidence that women and girls are often more vulnerable to disasters than men and boys, the series features five case studies on gender and DRR or humanitarian programming in DR Congo, Pakistan, Indonesia, Vietnam and Kenya. Through reflection, analysis and documentation of experience, and by sharing the lessons learned, this collection of papers is intended to help to make future work more effective.
