Overview for Gender Dimensions in Disaster Management: A Guide for South Asia

Gender Dimensions in Disaster Management aims to address the dearth of specific information on the subject of 'gender issues in disasters', particularly in the South Asian countries. This book is targetted at policy makers and development practitioners in South Asia, whose contribution is vital for effective disaster management and sustainable development in the sub-continent. The discussion of this book based on the fundamental arguments that: the risk posed by natural hazards is a variable, which has direct implications on development in general, and livelihoods in particular. Disaster risk management is part of 'managing the livelihood'. The gender concerns experienced in the development context are applicable in the context of disasters, with an added weight. The specific vulnerabilities and capacities of men and women, and the gender/social dynamics of disaster-situations are often not obviously visible. Detailed livelihood analysis however, exposes these often subtle but vital considerations. If ignored these concerns will impede development efforts reaching their goals. In this guide, ITDG and its network of partners in South Asia, present their firm conviction that incorporating disaster risk into development planning, and addressing gender considerations is an absolute must to reach the goals of sustainable development and effective disaster risk reduction.
