Integrating gender in disaster management in Small Island Developing States: a guide

This guide outlines the vulnerability of Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in the Pacific and the Caribbean and explains how gender roles and responsibilities result in differential exposure and impact of disasters. It seeks to support existing international frameworks that advocate gender equality: (i) the Hyogo Framework of Action in the area of risk management and its relation to development; and (ii) objective 3 of the Millennium Development Goals — a global consensus framework and statement of commitment. It is intended to be a practical tool for disaster managers and their teams working to build resilience at the community level in small islands and ensure greater equality in the field of risk management.
