4th Training Course on Gender Equality and Social Inclusion in Disaster Risk Reduction Course

Date:  17 - 21 Oct 2022

Venue: Bangkok (On-site Training), Thailand




The course will provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to operationalize gender equality and social inclusion into each phase of disaster risk reduction programs.


In disasters, the needs of women, girls, boys and men are different and distinct. However, women and girls are disproportionally affected. Other marginalized and vulnerable sectors of the population such as persons with disabilities and persons with special needs are as equally affected.

With the maxim that genuine development must leave no one behind, development practitioners are strongly encouraged to attend this course as it will provide them with an improved capacity to develop and implement gender equality and social inclusion strategies in DRR contexts.


The course is designed for following types of professionals: Practitioners involved in gender and disaster risk reduction; Gender advocates and ambassador, researchers in gender field; Officials from provincial and city administrations working for gender in emergencies; International NGOs, UN women, donors, and the private sector; and individuals who are interested to learn more about the discipline.


A week course will be conducted in the Face to Face modality and based on adult learning methodologies and tools with a heavy emphasis on practical application of case studies. Interactive tools and role play will demonstrate practical aspects while theoretical basis will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring their own program frameworks to use as the main learning tools and to ensure practical application of the lessons and concepts discussed.
