This report includes an assessment of the extent to which progress towards the targets of the Sendai Framework has been gender-responsive and disability-inclusive. The assessment guiding research question was: “how do selected countries in the Asia-Pacific region identify and address diverse needs of disadvantaged groups, characterised by sex, age, and disability, in the context of disaster risk reduction?” By addressing this question, this report creates a baseline to monitor national and regional progress towards gender equality and social inclusion in disaster risk reduction.
