This Learning Companion aims to provide Oxfam programme staff with the basis for incorporating gender analysis and women’s rights into Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) programming. With multiple case studies and definitions, this guide discusses the importance of gender in Oxfam’s DRR and CCA activities, the approaches taken by Oxfam to mainstream gender in adaptation and risk reduction, and the inclusion of a gender perspective throughout the project cycle management.
