Based on a collaboration between the International Recovery Platform (IRP) and United Nations Development Programme India (UNDP-India), this guide is intended for use by policymakers, planners, and implementers of local, regional and national government bodies interested or engaged in facilitating a more responsive, sustainable, and risk-reducing recovery process. It presents multiple experiences and lessons learned from Kenya, Indonesia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, India, Fiji, Chile or the Carribean, and organised in four major themes : 1. Mainstreaming gender in disaster recovery institutions and organizations; 2. Identifying gender specific recovery needs; 3. Engaging women in recovery initiatives; 4. Facilitating a gender-balanced economic recovery.
