Gender and Localization: Perspectives and Case Studies from Asia and the Pacific

Authors/editor(s): Gender in Humanitarian Action | Asia and the Pacific Working Group

In Asia and the Pacific, in preparation for the Regional Conference on Localization as well as for the 2020 Asia-Pacific Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, two events were held to bring together women-led, women-centred and women’s rights organizations for collective advocacy and sharing of best practices around gender-responsive localization. This publication brings together the collective outcomes of both the Gender-Based Violence Area of Responsibility (GBV AoR) Task Team on Localization regional consultation in Asia and the Pacific (Bangkok, Thailand, August 2019), and the Voice-Visibility-Influence Consultation (Jakarta, Indonesia, August 2019), with case studies presented at the events and submitted by Gender in Humanitarian Action Working Group members.
