As part of the research project ARCH, this report chapter analyses the relevance of gender issues when focusing on the resilience of historic areas to hazards, including climate-related hazards. The primary aim of this report is to provide the ARCH research team with a more advanced understanding of the importance and relevance of gender mainstreaming not only in general, but also in the specific gender issues relevant to their field of work. Situating gender mainstreaming in the context of social justice, the dimensions recognition, distribution and procedure are used as an analytical framework. While gender and gender mainstreaming are often considered in high level frameworks which govern cultural heritage management, disaster risk management and climate adaptation, they often lack an explicit definition or are not made operational. The report suggests possible measures to better support the consideration of gender in research and practice in the context of building cultural heritage resilience.
