In late 2020, Rapid Asia carried out a study on Women and Girls’ participation in Community Risk Management in Bangladesh to better understand and increase the level of inclusion and participation of women, girls and marginalized groups in Disaster Risk Management. The report aims to understand how successful CBOs are in addressing the gender inequalities which result in women and girls suffering more than men and boys during disasters, the extent to which social norms and gender barriers persist within DRM once women are included in CBOs and the extent to which this inclusion has a positive effect on women and girls’ capacity to mitigate and survive disasters.
