GFDRR is bolstering its commitment to and capacity for integrating a gender sensitive approach into its climate and disaster risk management efforts.
GFDRR’s Gender Action Plan (GAP) is an overarching strategy that emerges from and is driven by the Inclusive Community Resilience (ICR) program but is applied across the GFDRR portfolio. The plan addresses two critical aspects of gender and Disaster Risk Management (DRM):
• Understanding and addressing the different needs of men and women in DRM investments
• Promoting women’s empowerment for broader resilience strengthening
GFDRR aims to ensure that DRM investments go beyond “gender screening” towards specific actions and outcomes that both address the gender dimensions of DRM and empower women for broader resilience strengthening.
