Integrating Gender into Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management Planning
Program Locations: Philippines
Project Duration: 2020
Project Lead: Colleen McGinn, Ph.D.
This project reviewed how gender had been mainstreamed into risk assessment methodologies in the Philippines, and identified entry points for better mainstreaming of gender and social inclusion. The study focused on the Climate Disaster Risk Assessment (CDRA) toolbox, a key tool used by local governments in the Philippines for assessing disaster risk, identifying vulnerable populations, and identifying appropriate policies and interventions.
