This policy brief by UN Women focuses on increasing community resilience against climate change and natural hazards in the Pacific region, specifically through the advancement of women’s rights. The IREACH Programme was introduced to ensure the inclusion of Pacific women within DRR and climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts. UN Women’s long term programme also aims to support evidence-base and gender-disaggregated data on climate change, disaster and gender, disaster response assistance by providing training in the Solomon Islands on gender mainstreaming among others.
