A gender-responsive approach to disaster risk reduction (DRR) planning in the agriculture sector

Source(s):  Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations - Headquarters (FAO)

Guidance for supporting rural women and men to build resilience in the face of disasters

This note provides an overview of how to apply a gender-responsive approach to DRR planning by summarizing why this approach is necessary and describing five key actions that can be put into place. The primary audience is policy-makers and planners working in government offices at local and national levels, and practitioners supporting DRR planning and programming in international and national organizations.

Men and women are impacted by disasters in different ways and often have distinct coping strategies. A gender-responsive approach to DRR planning means that gender-based differences and issues are considered in the design of the policy, strategy, plan or programme, and gender equality is promoted in its implementation.
