This volume of the ‘Long-term Disaster Resilience’ report consists of a literature review focusing on the gendered analysis of lived social experience of men, women, boys, girls and volunteers. The ‘lived social experience’ is categorised into three levels: individual, family and community, and the volunteers are categorised at an organisational level. The review team also conducted a thematic analysis on seven papers and identified six key themes: technology, relationships, age and experience, shifting knowledge, health and well-being, and government and insurance. The literature review also uncovered the lack of references to gender throughout long-term recovery and resilience literature.
