Disaster Preparedness and Response that Mainstream Gender


UN Women in Thailand works with the Office of Women’s Affairs and Family Development, Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, civil society partners and women’s groups to promote the gender-sensitive and community & rights-based approach to the 2011 flood crisis, to extract lessons learnt and develop models for future use of related organizations. The project promotes women’s participation in disaster preparedness and response as well as ensures targeted and strategic response to women with particular vulnerabilities, such as women migrant workers, women in the informal sector, female heads of households, women with disabilities, elderly women and HIV positive women.
