Disaster and gendered impact in a changing climate towards girl's education - For Plan International Asia-Pacific Regional Hub (May 2021)

Source(s):  PLAN International Asia Regional Office

This research study mapped out existing factors that compound and exacerbate natural hazard risks of marginalized children, especially girls, with particular attention to harmful gender norms and stereotypes. It captured the actual and gendered impacts of disasters and climate crisis on girls and boys, with attention to educational continuity and attainment. This research was aimed at better understanding the broader social and historical contexts in Sunsari district of Nepal and Kurigram district of Bangladesh where Plan International Asia-Pacific Regional Hub and the Plan country offices have been supporting school based Disaster Risk Management initiatives. The research also explored international, national and local regulatory frameworks on gender sensitive disaster risk management, climate resilience, and school-centered disaster risk management.

The report offers specific recommendations to address gender norms and stereotypes that exacerbated the impacts of disaster and climate risks on girls and boys, their educational continuity. Some key messages included: 

  • Gender has been mainstreamed in both global and national regulatory/policies/frameworks/guidelines.

  • National school-based disaster management frameworks/guidelines needs improving to be more gender transformative.

  • Girls and boys from marginalised backgrounds, including those with disability and LGBTQ+, face specific hindrances.
