Le Masson, V. & Langston, L. (2014) How should the new international disaster risk framework address gender equality? Policy Brief Climate and Development Knowledge Network: London.

A policy brief that takes stock of lessons from the literature on gender and disaster to highlight recommendations for the next international framework to effectively mainstream gender equality in disaster risk reduction. It stresses the gap between policy and practice in gender-sensitive DRR and the gaps between discourses and actual initiative and fiscal commitments to promote gender equality.
