I urge Governments to engage women and girls in the implementation of national and local strategies for disaster risk reduction throughout the Decade of Action till 2030.

2030 is just around the corner. Sustainable development cannot be achieved if all critical actors, and in particular women and girls, are not heard loud and clear and their expertise is not recognized and respected in building communities and nations’ resilience to disasters.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

I am committed to work with partners and women’s groups to identify and share good practices on gender and disaster risk reduction, and promote women and girls’ voices in disaster risk reduction at the Regional Platforms for Disaster Risk Reduction taking place in 2021.
I am committed to ensure that gender is integrated across the objectives and enablers of UNDRR’s next strategic framework 2022-2025
