The aim of the manual for the training of trainers is to provide a tool to support government stakeholders within DRR in the integration of gender into DRR policies and frameworks and as an analytical tool for national action plans for example. Consisting of practical exercises, a multitude of case studies and study materials, the manual provides relevant information on gender and associated concepts and introduces gender mainstreaming and equality for DRR policies and practices for governmental bodies to assist in building capacities. The manual also assists trainers in understanding gender issues and the needs of women in DRR problem solving, preparedness and assessing vulnerability.
