Facilitating factors and constraints from the experiences of the Afghanistan Resilience Consortium
This technical paper on women’s voices and agency in community-based disaster risk reduction (CBDRR) draws on the Gender-Focused Situation Analysis carried out in project sites of the members of the Afghanistan Resilience Consortium (ARC). It recognises that for communities to become resilient, it is a prerequisite that the gender-based vulnerabilities of women – who constitute half of society – are analysed, addressed, and finally transformed into capacities.
