Inclusive & gender-sensitive approach to school-centered disaster-risk reduction

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): Asian Venture Philanthropy Network (AVPN)
Plan International
Sweden - government

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 14 Apr 2021 Location: Online event

As the frequency and intensity of natural hazards rise, children are becoming more vulnerable to disasters. At least 875 million school children live in high seismic-risk zones, and hundreds of millions more face regular floods, landslides, extreme winds and fire hazards.

These children also spend almost 50% of their time in school facilities that are often not disaster-resilient. They face great disruptions to education access, as it is one of the first activities to be abandoned when disasters occur.  Women and girls are disproportionately affected by natural hazard induced disasters. Nonetheless, education is key to unlocking girls’ potential, and is one of the most effective interventions for achieving development goals.

The need to incorporate an inclusive lens in disaster-risk reduction programmes has been increasingly articulated in regional declarations and action plans. Cities like New Delhi and Ulaanbaatar have called for meaningful participation and leadership from women, migrants, children and youth, people with disabilities, and more.

Join us in this webinar series to:

  • Promote and facilitate the exchange of good gender and inclusion practices;
  • Learn how an inclusive, gender-sensitive approach can be integrated into school-centered disaster risk reduction plans;
  • Understand the implications of building community resilience

Time: 02:30 PM - 04:00 PM (Singapore)
