IRDR IWD Gender and Disasters Event

Publication date:

On 8th March 2013, International Women’s Day, the UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction hosted a panel discussion on “Gender and Disasters”, in which we explored how the genders are differently impacted by natural disasters, why this difference exists, and what is being done about it. A panel of experts and an experienced chair-person all with very wide ranging experiences and backgrounds made this a very lively and informative discussion, with keen participation from the audience. The panel of experts included Paula Albrito, Head of the European Office of the UNISDR, David Alexander, UCL Professor of Risk and Disaster Reduction, and Linda O’Halloran, Director of NGO Thinking Development. It was Chaired by Ellie Lee, Reader in Social Policy. Further details of the Chair and panelists and a video of the full panel discussion can be found below.
