Review of gender-responsiveness and disability-inclusion in disaster risk reduction in Asia and the Pacific

This report includes an assessment of the extent to which progress towards the targets of the Sendai Framework has been gender-responsive and disability-inclusive. The guiding research question for the assessment is as follows: how do selected countries in the Asia-Pacific region identify and address diverse needs of disadvantaged groups, characterized by sex, age, and disability, in the context of DRR? By addressing this question, this report creates a baseline to monitor national and regional progress towards gender equality and social inclusion in DRR.
