Webinar: Mainstreaming Gender Equality and Social Inclusion in Disaster Risk Reduction and Management: Gaps, Tools, and Priorities in the Post-COVID-19 Scenario in Nepal

Several international instruments such as CEDAW, Core Humanitarian Standards, and Sendai Framework have prioritized the need of mainstreaming Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) in all stages Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM). The Government of Nepal has endorsed and implemented Acts, policies, guidelines for DRRM with commitments for GESI, but time and on, such commitments are very feeble when it actually comes to the implementation stage. GESI is however neglected still in DRRM or health emergency management. This webinar on Friday 14th August 2020 will introduce students with the prominent policies, practices and tools for mainstreaming GESI in DRRM.
