Gender, human rights and environment in Disaster Risk Management
The PPRD East 3 programme aims at strengthening capabilities of civil protection institutions in the Eastern
neighbourhood countries to better prevent, prepare for, cope with and recover from emergencies. To reach the
outcomes, the integration of gender, human rights and environment as cross cutting issues in the programme is
fundamental. This to ensure that the DRM systems and actors are strengthened in a direction that strives
towards are safer, sustainable and more resilient society for everyone, including for women, girls, boys and
men, elderly, people with disabilities and other minorty groups, and that we make sure to leave no one behind.
The webinar will introduce participants to why gender, human rights and environment is important in DRM
and how the integration of these cross cutting perspectives in DRM helps responsible actors to more
effectively carry out their job and fulfil their mandate.
The webinar will also launch the new PPRD East 3 Practical Guideline for integrating gender, human rights
and environment in the programme. Participants will learn about the process of developing the Guideline and
how the different tools can be used to support DRM actors to take practical actions to integrate these
perspectice into activities within different thematic areas, such as Early Warning Systems, Risk Assessments,
Emergency preparedness and public communication.
After the presentation, a discussion will follow on how participants in the webinar can contribute to integrating
gender, human rights and environment in their own area of work and the Working Groups’ activities, and how
the tools in the Guideline can be utilised as support.
