Guidelines on the Integration of Violence Against Women and Girls including Family Violence in Disaster Risk Management in the Caribbean

diciembre 26, 2023

The present Guidelines on Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and Family Violence (FV) in Disaster Risk Management (DRM) are grounded in the strategic framework for disaster risk management and its four phases: mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery.

The Guidelines offer navigation tools that the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) and national and regional stakeholders can apply in order to effectively mainstream gender in DRM. They include checklists that underscore the importance of gender analysis in DRM and identify key interventions such as:

  • collecting and using sex-disaggregated data;

  • training DRM personnel in gender-responsive practices in times of disaster;

  • integrating gender analysis and gender specialists at all stages of DRM;

  • allocating budget funds for secure infrastructure to protect women and girls;

  • networking among key institutions responsible for the elimination of GBV and FV.
