Efforts to build resilience to climate change and disasters in developing countries will not be effective or sustainable if they do not take gender into consideration. Policies, plans, and initiatives must take into account gender differences in roles and responsibilities, access to information, resources, opportunities, and decision-making power. 

Our KABP analysis explores gender-related perceptions and biases and how they play out in coordination mechanisms for climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction. It provides the foundation needed to understand how gender-related knowledge, attitudes, behaviours, and practices within institutions may enable or inhibit gender-responsive approaches. 

This webinar marks the launch of our KABP analysis
