Ensuring gender responsive disaster risk reduction – Good practices from ASEAN
Organisation:
UN Women
Region:
Asia

On 10 November 2021, the first ASEAN Forum on Gender and Disaster Risk Reduction was jointly organised by the ASEAN Secretariat, Viet Nam Disaster Management Authority, and UN Women, under the leadership of the ACDM Working Group on Global Leadership and the Technical Working Group on Protection, Gender, and Inclusion (PGI). Under the theme of “5 Years after the Ha Noi Recommendations for Action on Gender and Disaster Risk Reduction”, the Forum provided a platform to promote commitments of ASEAN Member States on integration of gender in the implementation of the ASEAN Agreement on Disaster Management and Emergency Response (AADMER) Work Programme 2021-2025 and the implementation of the ASEAN Regional Framework on PGI in Disaster Management 2021-2025.

The Forum revisited the Ha Noi Recommendations on Gender and DRR (2016) to sharpen the recommendations and informing ASEAN Member States with practical experiences. This book is a compendium consolidating 8 good practices from ASEAN member states, organized along the four Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 priorities of understanding disaster risk, strengthening risk governance, investing in DRR for resilience, and enhancing disaster preparedness for building back better.”
