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 and marginalized 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.
