This paper is based on the conference held in Melbourne in April 2018 and gives an overview of the topics that were discussed and presented. To prepare for the expected increase in droughts and harsh weather, authors argue for the need to understand why there is an increase in violence against women and how disasters affect women and men differently. This paper also focuses on intersectionality and other issues that would lead to someone being more vulnerable. The aim is to include the needs of diverse groups within disaster planning, response and recovery
