The JSDF Dialogue Series was initiated by the World Bank Group Trust Funds and Partnerships (DFPTF), formerly the World Bank Global Partnerships and Trust Fund Operations (CFPTO), the World Bank Tokyo Office, and the World Bank Tokyo Development Learning Center (TDLC) in 2012, to disseminate the results from the program among practitioners, academia, CSOs, and other Japanese stakeholders. It aims to highlight the achievements and lessons learned from projects funded by JSDF around the world and to connect stakeholders and the Japanese general public with project beneficiaries and implementers for disseminating good practices and encouraging further communication and knowledge exchange among various actors. The Dialogue Series is hosted at TDLC on a quarterly basis.
Women and men’s different needs, roles and opportunities put women and men differently at risk from disasters and influences emergency management strategies. Women and men experience disaster impacts differently in health, safety, community support, and resource needs at the household and community levels. It is therefore important that women’s and men’s particular vulnerabilities and needs are assessed and taken into consideration into Disaster Risk Management (DRM) strategies.
This session will provide participants with an understanding of the key findings and tools for taking into account women and men’s particular needs, roles and opportunities into DRM programs and share lessons learnt on how gender dimension can be incorporated in a Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) and recovery programs.
