Did you miss this? You can watch the full webinar presentation below: 

Vulnerability Assessments (VAs) can be useful tools in providing key insights for NGOs and other development stakeholders. But what is the best way to integrate gender, and how can we use them to design programmes which have resilience-building measures and risk reduction strategies at their heart?

We will be drawing on experiences from development practitioners and consider what we have learnt about the importance of integrating gender issues into VAs.

Join us to discuss these issues and more in a webinar on March 10th between 12-1pm.

  • Daniel Morchain, Oxfam GB, Global Adviser - Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience & Co-Principal Investigator ASSAR project (Adaptation at Scale in Semi Arid Regions)

  • Dr Libertad Chavez-Rodriguez, Professor-Researcher, Center for Research and Advanced Studies in Social Anthropology (CIESAS), México
