This handbook is targeted at humanitarian field workers to encourage them to integrate gender into their work. It discusses the importance of focusing on gender and gender sensitive assessment and response in emergencies and outlines clear reasons about why and how to integrate gender into emergency disaster response. It includes how this can be done in pre stages of assessment, and until post disaster evaluation and proposals.
