The number and complexity of hazards and disasters are increasing rapidly and there is ample evidence that women and girls are often more vulnerable to disasters than men and boys. This collection of Programme Insights papers considers the progress made and the challenges we still face in humanitarian and disaster risk reduction interventions, in responding adequately to the needs of all affected people. By sharing lessons learned, the papers can have value beyond their own contexts and will help to make future work more effective.
