Towards post-2015 agenda for DRR (HFA2): Women as a force in resilience building, gender equality in DRR. Report of the consultations in Asia Pacific

Source(s):  Duryog Nivaran (DN)

This HFA2 consultative report discusses the role of women in different aspects of disaster risk management and resilience. It argues that all partnerships for disaster risk management and resilience building must be inclusive of women at all levels. This is specifically significant at the local level where women come across as the most reliable stakeholder group; and therefore delivery of effective local risk governance will depend on their active contribution.

This report also expresses concerns that women will be left out from the public policy implementation of HFA 2 plans due to the focus on formal mechanisms. Therefore, specific focus and special actions need to be put in place to capture and address specific vulnerabilities of women and to recognize and strengthen their capacities.
