Gender-responsive disaster risk reduction in the agriculture sector. Guidance for policy-makers and practitioners

Guideline

The training guide Gender-Responsive Disaster Risk Reduction in the Agriculture Sector is intended primarily for policy-makers and practitioners, who have a good understanding of disasters but limited knowledge of gender issues, and work on DRR policies, plans, information systems, or other activities related to disaster-prone communities. Its main objective is to present theoretical and practical approaches to address gender issues in DRR strategies for the agriculture sector, illustrating some  stories on how gender issues cut across men’s and women’s experiences of disaster risk and can be addressed in DRR decision-making. This guide also provides an overview of a gender-responsive planning process, and guidance on how to collect sex-disaggregated data and conduct a gender analysis, including a glossary of key terms and a tool box of qualitative data collection methods.
