Gender and disaster risk reduction: a training pack

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

This training pack has been written for Oxfam programme staff, partner organizations, and other agencies working in areas associated with DRR. Its purpose is to provide a ‘gender lens’ through which they can plan, implement, and evaluate their work. The focus here is on the operational aspects of projects and programmes, and to a lesser extent on influencing broader institutional policies and practices through policy and advocacy work. The pack aims to develop participants’ skills and competencies in addressing gender issues throughout the project cycle, from assessment, analysis, and planning through to implementation, monitoring, and evaluation.

This training pack does not provide specific guidance or materials on how to adapt to climate change. For guidance on gender and climate change and for specific resources such as the IUCN and UNDP’s ‘Training Manual on Gender and Climate Change Adaptation’ adaptation, please contact the Adaptation and Risk Reduction Team (

The modules address:

  1. Key concepts and links: gender, disaster risk reduction (DRR)
  2. Gender mainstreaming and gender analysis in DRR work
  3. Gender in programme planning and implementation: participation, empowerment, dignity, and accountability
  4. Monitoring and evaluation: Wrap-up session
