Accelerating action on gender equality in disaster risk reduction by 2030
This report is an analysis of gender and social inclusion priorities in country, regional and thematic reports prepared for the midterm review of the Sendai Framework (MTR SF). It is an additional resource to the two global reports produced for the MTR SF led and coordinated by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), which provide a global assessment of the progress made in the implementation of the Sendai Framework: The Report of the Midterm Review of the Implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 and the Report of the Main Findings and Recommendations of the Midterm Review of the Implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 (A/77/640).
Snapshot of key findings:
- Gender and social inclusion are acknowledged as priorities for a large portion of Member States.
- Good practices on gender were identified across all four priorities of the Sendai Framework, although the scope and scale varied.
- There is a need to address broader, underlying risk factors and socioeconomic disparity to improve gender outcomes in DRR, particularly in the wake of COVID-19.
- The lack of disaggregated data and systematic information collection continues to hamper the understanding and reporting of gender and social inclusion in DRR.
- Addressing gender imbalance in disaster reduction requires active intervention, not only passive intentions.
- Good practices by local organizations, women’s organizations and civil society remain largely unacknowledged.
- Other stakeholders at the global and regional level are making considerable contributions across a range of thematic areas.
