Here you can find publications, tools, and case studies to support gender-responsive decision making and practice. These resources are organised through the WRD Framework, which comprises three WRD Pillars, 15 topics, and three cross-cutting issues, which together provide the foundations for building women’s resilience to disasters.

Explore over 1,000 publications, tools, and frameworks to support gender-responsive decision making and practice. These resources are organised through the WRD Knowledge Framework, which comprises three pillars of 15 topics, and three cross-cutting issues, together providing the foundations for building women’s resilience to disasters.
Explore the latest, relevant publications from UN Women, UN agencies, civil society, and other disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation, resilience, gender equality, and social inclusion practitioners – as well as new resources developed specifically for the WRD Knowledge Hub.
Our intention is to centralise all key tools for building women’s resilience. Too often, practitioners are reinventing the wheel rather than building on the good practices, experiences, and learning from other regions. We will be regularly updating our collection as new tools are developed and shared.
