Gender mainstreaming in emergency management: opportunities for building community resilience in Canada

Source(s):  Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC)

This report builds on international efforts over the past decade to develop more gender-sensitive approaches to disaster risk management. It addresses recent initiatives by researchers, practitioners and policy makers to promote gender mainstreaming.

The report reflects that while Canada has hosted gender and disaster conferences in Vancouver (1998) and Cape Breton (2006), little demonstrated change has followed along the lines recommended. Women’s organizations and networks, especially in the health sector, remain “out of the loop” of emergency preparedness. Further, the paper emphasised the need for an implementation framework and provided detailed strategic recommendations for gender mainstreaming in the Canadian context.

The document was prepared for the Public Health Agency of Canada, Centre for Emergency Preparedness and Response.
