International Day for Disaster Reduction

 

World Disaster Reduction Campaign

Get involved:

  • Showcase what women and girls are doing to contribute to disaster resilience.
  • Organize public events to increase understanding of gender concerns in DRR processes.
  • Lobby national and local governments as well as community leaders and decision makers, academia, and international organizations to 'Step Up'.
  • Mobilize the public at large to demand changes to the socio-cultural/political framework that exacerbates the exclusion of women and their vulnerabilities.
  • Encourage men and boys to get involved.
  • Think Big - Gender equality and risk reduction principles must guide all aspects of disaster mitigation, response and reconstruction.
  • Get The Facts - Gender analysis is needed to direct aid and plan for full and equitable recovery. Nothing in disaster work is "gender neutral."
  • Work With Women - Women's community organizations have insight, information, experience, networks, and resources vital to increasing disaster resilience.
  • Resist Stereotypes - Base all initiatives on knowledge of difference and specific cultural, economic, political, and sexual contexts, not on false generalities.
  • Respect and develop the capacities of women and girls.
