Guidelines for Gender Sensitive Disaster Management

These guidelines are a set of practical steps to assist governments, the non state sector and civil society to respond to women’s concerns and needs in post disaster situations. The guidelines have been developed based on the reports of the survey of women’s human rights violations in the aftermath of the December 26, 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami in India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand and the October 2005 earthquake in Pakistan.
