This article aims to identify analytical gender tools that can improve responses to disasters through a systematic literature review on gender and disaster. Such analytical framework would help evaluate the gender vulnerabilities and recovery capacity before, during and post-disaster, thus improving disaster management overall. Based on the selected references, the article finds a lack of valid and reliable data on women’s vulnerabilities within current literature.
