Gendering disaster risk reduction - key resources

The Gender and Disaster Network urges all actors responding to the Haitian earthquake to adopt a gender-responsive approach that builds on women’s capacities and resources while reflecting the gender-specific needs of women and men, boys and girls. We offer these resources for planning and advocacy and a better understanding of the need for gender-aware approaches to disaster risk management.

For additional resources, please visit the Gender and Disaster Sourcebook >> Policy and Planning Tools: http://www.gdnonline.org/sourcebook/chapt/ind.php?id=2 .

First, visit MADRE [http://www.madre.org/index.php?s=4&news=2 ] and GROOTS/Disaster Watch: http://www.disasterwatch.net/index.html to learn how they are working wih grassroots women in Haiti and the region.
