Climate change, disaster risk reduction and gender: the southeast Asia experience

Source(s):  S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS)

The 2005 Hyogo Framework for Action has called for a gendered approach in disaster risk reduction efforts. Despite being frequently battered by climate-related disaster events, countries in Southeast Asia remain rather slow in mainstreaming gender in their disaster management policies and action plans.

At the regional level, gendered approach to disaster management is not explicitly reflected in the 2005 ASEAN Agreement on Disaster Management and Emergency Response (AADMER). As the region continues to prepare itself against the increased likelihood of climate-related disaster events, mainstreaming gender in disaster risk reduction, response and recovery needs to be made a priority in both aiding countries and disaster-prone countries.
