Local Leadership Academy- Risk-informed development in a context of gender inequality
Unless development is systematically gender transformative, we will see disasters placing women into intractable cycles of poverty. There is a need to ensure that women who face risks and are in vulnerable situations are empowered to provide solutions, demand rights, services and increased access to information, and participate in decision-making processes. In the next five years, this means us standing together to bring about a shift from women being viewed as a homogenous group with a ‘one size fits all’ approach to reducing their risk, to developing distinct ways of building resilience relevant to the diverse contexts and factors which women are experiencing, including age, culture, class, caste, and more. In this session, experts from across the network will present tools and research on gender-transformative approaches to risk-informed development that take into account intersectional vulnerabilities.
