This publication offers concrete examples and gender perspectives that can be successfully included in interventions before, during and after disasters. Although natural disasters do not discriminate, their impacts are far from gender-neutral. The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction stresses the need to integrate gender perspectives in all disaster-related policies and practices, as well as to promote women's leardership at all levels of society.

This is the second compilation of good practices on integrating gender into humanitarian action in Asia, developed on the behalf of the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Regional Network Working Group on Gender in Humanitarian Action in Asia-Pacific.
