Making it Count: Integrating Gender into Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction
09 October 2015
The handbook is an easy-to-use guide developed by CARE International, GIZ and UN Women in Vietnam. This guideline will help DRR practitioners, government and non-government officers to integrate gender during design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of climate change and disaster risk reduction activities. Besides listing key considerations and actions to take for addressing gender and women's empowerment in disaster preparedness and risk assessment and planning, it also looks at livelihoods, REDD+ and ecosystems, sustainable energy and waste management and water, sanitation and hygiene. This is developed through a process which harnesses resources from various organizations and field-level experience.
