This working paper captures first person experiences of flood, disaster risk and early warning of marginalised and vulnerable women in Peru and Nepal. Focusing specifically on the voices of marginalised women including those who are single mothers, the elderly, those with disabilities, transgender women, and also women who are pregnant or with young babies, the paper establishes methodological recommendations: listening to a wide range of experiences, trust as critical, the usefulness of mobile phone interviews, the importance of an intersectional approach, and including other missing voices.
