Resilient women: integrating community resilience priorities in the post-2015 agenda

Source(s):  Huairou Commission

This is an action research publication of the Community Practitioners Platform (CPP) for Resilience in Latin America and the Caribbean, an organizing and networking mechanism for community-based groups, grassroots women-led groups in particular, to reduce their vulnerability to disaster and climate risks in rural and urban areas. The publication spotlights the realities, actions, and gains of CPP's member organizations from Brazil, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Nicaragua, Peru and Venezuela.

The data was collected by grassroots women's community-based organizations: a total of 402 surveys and 18 focus group discussions were conducted.

The participatory action research addressed the following:

  • Experiences of disasters and climate change by grassroots communities
  • Risks faced by grassroots women in land and food security
  • Community partners and allies' roles in resilience building
  • Programs and public policies that advance resilience priorities

The publication also features in-depth case studies in Honduras and Peru.
