Addressing the need for detailed analysis on how disaster or flood affects women and how DRR planning could be more gender-sensitive, this report was commissioned to examine the impacts of flood on women in Cambodia. The study investigates how floods affect women differentially from men, what are the most significant problems that women face during and after a disaster; and make recommendations on how to integrate gender analysis into disaster planning.
