This video illustrates that disasters affect women and men differently.
- Climate change will make storms, floods and cyclones more frequent and severe in the future. More than ever, therefore, there is a need for men and women to work equally together to better protect their communities from disasters.
- Women can make a real difference in saving their families and assets if they can play a bigger role in preventing and managing disasters. There is the need to empower women in early warning education and preparedness to reduce the impact of disasters.
