Protection, Gender, Inclusion and Disaster Law Snapshot 2018

Protection, Gender, Inclusion and Disaster Law Snapshot 2018

Disasters have devastating impacts, some of which are more obvious than others. The immediate aftermath of disasters often leave behind visible destruction, damage and human suffering. Additionally, they create major economic losses and long-term effects on a country’s sustainable development outcomes. At the same time, there can be other invisible impacts that go unnoticed and unaddressed. Existing gender and power inequalities and sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) are among the somewhat ‘invisible’ risks that increase during and after disasters.

Recognizing that disasters are not gender-neutral, and disproportionately affect marginalised groups, IFRC offers recommendations on how to support gender equality, protection, and inclusion in disaster-related legislation, policies, and procedures.
