Gender Equality Checklist for Cyclone and Monsoon Season of the Gender in Humanitarian Action (GiHA) working group Bangladesh


Developed by the Gender in Humanitarian Action (GiHA) Working Group, chaired by the Department of Women Affairs, Ministry of Women and Children Affairs and Co-chaired by UN Women.

Natural disasters impact women, girls, boys, and men of all ages differently. Due to pre-existing gender inequalities women, children, persons with disabilities and gender diverse people represent the excluded and vulnerable groups that are often the most adversely affected by disasters.

It is crucial to take into consideration multiple forms of discrimination that individuals may be subjected to, in order to recognize their different and specific needs, capacities and priorities. This understanding should be integrated throughout the preparedness cycle

GiHA Bangladesh designed this checklist to support the Humanitarian Coordination Task Team (HCTT) and humanitarian practitioners in integrating gender equality in their disaster preparedness efforts for the monsoon and cyclone season in Bangladesh.
