Workshop Gender Policy and Economic Development Applying the Disaster Resilience Lens


...

Concept Note:

The purpose of holding this workshop is to deliberate, seek expert opinion on the policy discourse concerning the ‘National Gender Policy Framework’ and the potential integration of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Disaster Risk Management (DRM) lens and interventions. The recent floods in Pakistan have resulted in significant loss of life and livelihood and have had a disproportionately negative social and economic impact on women. Prior to the floods, Ministry of Planning, Development and Special Initiatives, GoP devised a comprehensive National Gender Policy Framework. This policy framework, although focusing on empowering women and, more significantly, enabling them financially, was designed when catastrophe risk was not a major concern. Against this backdrop, this policy document is reviewed from a gender, DRR and DRM perspective and includes

recommendations that can lead to improved policy frameworks and implementation vis a vis gender with a special focus on disaster risk resilience.
