To understand disaster risk better and tackle it more effectively and in a gender- and age-responsive manner, it is important to delve into the complexities and inequalities in a given location, and the differences within and between broad categories of women, men, boys and girls, taking a context-specific and intersectional approach. This study explores the connection between gender and age inequality and disaster risk, examining evidence at a global level and in three case study countries (Nepal, Malawi, and Dominica).
