Disaster risk reduction and gender: post 2015 gender equality in the future we want

This brief addresses the impact of disasters in the Latin America and Caribbean region (LAC), which reinforce, perpetuate, and increase the gender inequalities, widening the gap between men and women in the world's most unequal region. It considers the regional trends, main challenges and future of disaster risk reduction and gender in the post-2015 agendas, providing some recommendations around: capacity building, climate change, sustainable development, environmental and natural resources management and governance, as well as urban, economic, social, land-use planning, policies and communication mechanisms.
