Women's Resilience to Disasters Knowledge Hub Library


The Women’s Resilience to Disasters (WRD) Knowledge Hub is an online platform providing consolidated access to data, tools, research, and expertise on the gender dimensions of disasters and threats and gender-responsive disaster risk reduction and resilience.
