Building resilience for all: intersectional approaches for reducing vulnerability to natural hazards in Nepal and Kenya

Intersectional approaches recognise that ‘people have different identities, needs, priorities and capacities which are not static, and will shift and change over time – affecting their ability to prepare for, cope with and respond to natural hazards and climate variability.’ This paper aims to better understand different factors that influence people’s vulnerabilities and resilience to natural hazards, climate change and climate variability through a gender lens, while also taking a perspective that is more intersectional. The research investigated intersecting inequalities and how effective intersectional approaches to vulnerability reduction and resilience building can be developed and integrated into programming across different groups and agencies.
