The objective of this note is to identify entry points for integrating inclusion and gender considerations into disaster risk management (DRM) and climate resilience development policy operations while providing actionable recommendations.

The note identifies gaps, actions, and indicators grouped by five policy areas that had a greater emphasis on efforts to enhance social inclusion: (i) social protection; (ii) national DRM framework; (iii) health emergency preparedness and response; (iv) schools and educational infrastructure; and (v) urban, territorial, and physical development planning. This analysis is supported by country-specific case studies and best practices.
