New Editions to the Gender and Disaster Reference Guides Series.
On the International Day of Disaster Risk Reduction 2021, the Centre for Gender and Disaster at UCL is delighted to share the next volume of the Gender and Disaster Reference Guide series, and the 2nd Edition of Volume 1, to help share the increasing literature addressing gender inequalities in Disaster Risk Reduction.
Both guides, available on our Resources page, aim to facilitate the sharing of knowledge on the importance and the lessons learned of integrating gende
r studies in disaster scholarship. The guides contain annotated bibliographies of journal articles, reports, case studies, toolkits, blogs and books, to readers who may be new to this area of study, but also to students, academics, decision-makers, and policy writers who work and do research on the gender dimensions of disaster risk reduction.
Where we could, we populated the list with references that could also be useful to practitioners, to support the transition from theory and conceptualizations to implementation of gender-responsive practice with examples from different contexts. We also point readers to complementary bibliographies and compilations of resources, notably the Bibliography series from the Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights.
Volume 2 takes a closer look at the gender, disaster and conflict nexus, and includes themes such as gender, peacebuilding and security; gender-based violence and disaster; and gender, conflict and extremism. Volume 2 also addresses rights, livelihoods and the world of work. It also includes health and wellbeing with more recent publications on the gender-inequalities exacerbated, and aggravating the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2nd Edition of Volume 1 provides additional references across existing and new themes, notably the integration of gender in studies on climate change, wildfires, and extreme temperatures.
Volume 2 takes a closer look at the gender, disaster and conflict nexus, and includes themes such as gender, peacebuilding and security; gender-based violence and disaster; and gender, conflict and extremism. Volume 2 also addresses gender, health and wellbeing and includes some of the most current publications on the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our series and database are continually populated, updated (subject to volunteers' time capacities) and are constantly growing, due to the increasing interest from disaster scholars to integrate a gender perspective to their work. We therefore welcome feedback and suggestions for new materials to be added. For any suggestions or to request access to a resource that may be behind a pay wall, please email email@example.com
Thank you for your ongoing support.
