Effective law and policy on gender equality and protection from sexual and gender-based violence in disasters - Global case study

This report examines how national laws, policies and institutional frameworks can support gender equality in disaster risk management (DRM) and help prevent and respond to sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) in disasters.
It contributed to the implementation of two resolutions of the 32nd International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent in 2015. These were Resolution 3 on ‘Sexual and gender-based violence: Joint action on prevention and response’, and Resolution 6 on ‘Strengthening legal frameworks for disaster response, risk reduction and first aid’.
