Gender Transformative Early Warning Systems Policy Brief


Early warning systems (EWS) build community resilience to disasters, with the potential to save lives and livelihoods. Women andmarginalized gender groups face unique barriers in disasters, which must be considered in early warning. EWS that do not explicitly consider gender are likely to increase the marginalization of vulnerable gender groups. Our research in Nepal and Peru explores the interaction between gender and flood EWS. This policy brief extracts key findings and recommendations to ensure no one is left behind.
