Gender and Resilience. Working Paper

Gender and Resilience. Working Paper

This paper reviews different approaches to incorporating gender equality objectives into resilience projects and to monitoring gender equality outcomes. It uses a sample of project proposals from DFID’s Building Resilience to Climate Extremes and Disasters programme (BRACED) and makes suggestions on ways to promote effective and consistent practice across the full range of projects.
The methodology is twofold, involving a systematic review of how gender resiliencies are considered in the literature on disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation and an analysis of project planning materials for eight of the 15 NGO projects being supported by BRACED. The NGOs cover Mali, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Niger, Myanmar, Nepal, Kenya and Uganda.
