A Background Paper on gender inclusion in HFA2


       In this background paper Gender based issues and women’s role in development both in terms of their contribution  to developmentaccessing benefits have been reflected.  Nearly two decades since the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action the status of gender equality and women’s empowerment in social, economic and political spheres is considered limited and unsatisfactory. 
      The paper clearly admits that issues of gender equality and women inclusion is critical factor in formulating the post 2015 framework for Acton.  Consultations on the post-2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (HFA2) gives the clear message that gender issues require a stronger implementation focus and  ‘HFA2 should provide clear entry points for women’s leadership everywhere in dealing with both climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction.  

      This paper intends to examine the possible causes for the observed drawbacks and explore priority issues of consideration to address gender issues more effectively. The  paper argues that gender integration and women’s empowerment need to be approached as root causes of disaster risk and socio economic inequalities towards resilience building and sustainability.
