This short briefing note summarises the discussions of researchers and practioners after a workshop on gender relations and its absence from climate change and disaster debates. The note emphasises that gender equality is not simply centred around women, but instead is about the inequalities experienced through social, economic and cultural practices and norms. The briefing note delves into the inclusivity of resilience and power relations in all forms of governance, and conclusions consist of a list of policy pointers.
